generateKey as at 
https://github.com/horde/Crypt/blob/master/lib/Horde/Crypt/Pgp/Backend/Binary.php#L112 is fundamentally broken with gpg2, where direct interaction with secret keys is no longer 

In particular, an ignored option (secret_keyring) is passed to 
--gen-key and then used as if it was not ignored. All secret keys are 
stored in GNUPGHOME/private-keys-v1.d/ now (and are not named in a way 
that is trivial to deduce).

This blocks the ability for Ubuntu 18.04 to ship an updated php-horde-crypt.

I stumbled over this issue in Debian unstable (while trying to get the 
unit tests working again).

I send a PR to fix this bug:

The patch is also attached to this bug report now.
