Thanks Matt. I've been answering a couple of people a day in #tor who are
confused by this issue. As a stopgap, I've changed the instructions page:
to point people to a keyserver that doesn't (currently) have this bug.

Ultimately, I wonder if we should start providing a full keyring (text
file) that people can download from our website and import for themselves.
