On Arch Linux, the latest version of keysync (installed from the Arch User Repository) fails to convert Jitsi keys:

@$ uname -sr
Linux 3.12.6-1-ARCH

$ keysync -i jitsi
Reading jitsi files...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/keysync", line 110, in <module>

numdict = otrapps.util.ParsePkcs8(private_key)

Thanks for the bug report. Can you tell whether this error is in a private key or a public key? If it is in a public key, could you submit that piece of the conf file here to the bug tracker? Or do you know of a way to generate a key that causes this problem?
