Me neither. All keys I produce seem to get a 'datalen' of 42, whereas Seb's one has 24. I wonder why? What is that data and why is his data shorter?

BTW I just noticed if you have several keys in secring.gpg, gpg2john will only extract one of them, and give no notice about there being more. This could be improved.
