Authentication key isn't automatically imported when adding a PPA

Bug Description

In previous Ubuntu releases adding a PPA in Software Sources (by using software-properties-gtk) imported an authentication key automatically. But since I installed 11.10 this feature is gone, so I must save and import the key manually or use command line (sudo add-apt-repository ppa:user/package). Is it a bug, or I can just change something in configs to get autoimport back?

Aha! So that's why this fails. A fix is needed for the ppa import, then.
