Problems with public key details screen in webmin

Question:I use webmin to administrate our gpg installation.
I try to add an account (user name, email address and comment) to an existing (secret) key using webmin's "Public Key Details" screen.
The url looks like this:
I fill is user name = test, email = test@test and click on the "Add" key, but nothing happens.
The script seems to stall.
Answer:The CGI script interfaces with the gpg commandline tool. gpg rejects user names that are less than 5 characters long.
Unfortunately webmin does not check this in the GUI, and the script does not have an error handler for that.
