>From what I understand, this isn't a bug, gpg automatically calculates
when the trustdb should be checked, it's just that it happens a lot
since we're doing a lot of operations. We're not really hiding an
issue, just information that the average user won't be interested in
(at least I think the average user doesn't really care about gpg
checking the trustdb unless it fails, in which case the error will
still get printed even with this change).
