Hi David,

The state of the key is not causing this... Does the signer run as the
same user/group as the enforcer?

This is just a warning that you have to wait for the KSK and signatures
to propagate before the key is considered "ACTIVE". The wording is not
ideal for the initial signing situation, but makes more sense when
describing subsequent rolls.
