First off, thanks for all the help.
Maurizio sent me a patch, which I applied and rebuilt, but I still get the same "couldn't parse session key" error from keyclient. Let me make sure I'm understanding the situation correctly: 1) pubcookie currently assumes a 1024 bit key, and that's what's causing this error. 2) The patch that I have also allows for a 512 bit key. 3) Another, as yet unwritten patch will be necessary to get it working with a 2048 bit key, like mine.
Am I correct in these interpretations so far?

Twice I submitted it now. Is there some trick to doing this with
bugzilla that I don't know about? I've attached a number of other

It should be that simple. The patch defines a list of key lengths.
You would just need to add another item to the list.
