gpk-application 0.2.3 stops with the following error :-
Error Type: <type 'exceptions.TypeError'>
Error Value: object of type 'instancemethod' has no len()

hex_fingerprint = "80740e5" * len(fingerprint) 158781488ple(map(ord, fingerprint))
This occurs if the PGP-KEY is not installed for the appropriate repo server and gpgcheck is enabled.
In my case I was trying to install "vlc*" from rpm.livna.org on Fedora 9 (i386 Linux hp-laptop 18.104.22.168-97.fc9.i686 #1 SMP Mon Jul 21 01:31:09 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux). I installed livna's PGP-KEY and the error went away.
