I was trying to reset my wiki account password and `pass` seems to have lost its mind:
Code:
 ~ $ pass generate gentoo/wiki
gpg: CE0ACA30AE487532: There is no assurance this key belongs to the named user
gpg: [stdin]: encryption failed: Unusable public key
Password encryption aborted.
 ~ $ { gpg --list-keys; gpg --list-secret-keys; } | grep -i CE0ACA30AE487532
 ~ $

What's going on here? I haven't changed any settings recently and ~/.password-store/.gpg-id == $(git config user.signingkey), which I've just confirmed still works fine even after killing gpg-agent a few times.

If I run it as `bash -x /usr/bin/pass generate gentoo/wiki` I can even see it's using the correct key in the gpg2 command, right before it outputs that error.

(changed title from "app-admin/pass - complaining about nonexistent GPG key"; pass wasn't at fault)

I just went poking around in gpg --edit-key and found that substring was part of one of the subkeys (mystery solved - gpg's UI sucks and is needlessly confusing), but also my key was marked as unknown trust for some reason (WTF?)

I've fixed that, but I guess now the question is how did it get that way in the first place? Nothing else seems out of the ordinary here.
