Problem with GnuPG

I posted this recently on the GnuPG forum; however, no one had ever
seen it before.


gpg (GnuPG) 2.0.14
libgcrypt 1.4.4

gpa 0.9.0
I honestly have no idea what the problem is here. I recently
installed GnuPG on my system. Everything appeared to go fine. For some
reason, I have numerous keys listed that I have no knowledge of.

This URL shows the keys:  

These are not OpenPGP keys, but x.509 certificates. I have no idea why
they are showing up in the listing, nor can I delete them. GnuPG no
longer works with my MUA either.I have tried deleting GnuPG in its
entirety and the "~/.gnupg" directory. That did not alleviate the
problem. Once I reinstalled them, the problem resurfaced.

Other than dumping the whole system, reformatting and re-installing the
OS, has anyone ever heard of this happening before; and if so, how to
correct it?
