ECDSA message when using ECDH/EDDSA keys
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I'm seeing an interesting message when encrypting and signing with my
ECDH/EDDSA subkeys. The encryption and signing seems to work, so
it's mainly just an informational message (I don't have any ECDSA subkeys):

bminton@bminton:~$ echo hi|gpg2 -u 0424DC19B678A1A9 -r 0424DC19B678A1A9 -a -e -s
gpg: ECDSA public key is expected to be in SEC encoding multiple of 8 bits
