#20 Keys are not saved between sessions

I recently compiled gaim 0.68 with gaim-encryption
2.10 and I can engage in encrypted conversations with
other 2.x users. However when I exit gaim the stored
keys disappear.

I haven't been able to find any preference flag that
could be causing this behaviour, so I figured it's a
bug of some sort.

Any ideas?

    In the configuration dialog for gaim-encryption I can only
    see my private key when I restart gaim. Ie, it is
    interpreted as if I have no other keys loaded and when I
    want to initiate a conversation it always starts with
    "Requesting key..."

    However the file ~/.gaim/known_keys -do- contain the keys
    and they -are- stored between sessions. In other words
    they save properly but fail to be loaded upon restart.

    This is not a serious problem, but since 2.10 I use
    auto-encryption and since the ICQ-protocol features
    offline messages it can be quite annoying sometimes. Now
    I'm forced to turn off encryption since I cannot retrieve
    a (new) key from an offline user.

    Hope this helps,
    Mats.

    Not a bug. Keys are only loaded into RAM when seen (ie,
    they are used to figure out whether a key is "known" or
    "unknown" or "conflicting", so it knows whether or not to
    pop up a confirm dialog.
