Agreed, that is odd.

FTR, the first prompt is to unlock the primary key, the second prompt asks for a passphrase to encrypt the new secret subkey. If one enters the passphrase for the primary key, gpg uses the same passphrase to protect the new subkey.

Just for the protocol: This fix made it into the 2.1.22 release. Thanks a lot! (bug has tag "gpg22" though)
