afaik the ID is the key ID. When you do gpg --list-keys you get something
pub XXXXX/YYYYYYYY YYYY-MM-DD
uid Name <email>
sub ZZZZZ/AAAAAAAA YYYY-MM-DD
The 'YYYYYYYY' in my case is the key.
Also setting the environment variable GNUPGHOME (thanks Stefan :)) might
help you find the right .gnupg directory.
