Gnupg does not appear to create the ~/.gnupg directory and then dies
when trying to create a new key.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.2.6

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. gpg --gen-key
2. use all defaults (probably doesn't matter)

in ~/.gnupg

Expected results:
~/.gnupg created if it doesn't already exist

Additional info:
Works fine after manually creating ~/.gnupg
