Messages like this can be normal.  Here's an example.  A and B are
reconciling, and A has some key k, and B has a key k' which is an updated
version of k.   When A and B reconcile, A will discover it's missing k',
and B will decide it's missing k.  Each will request the other's key. 
Let's say  A goes first.  A will add k' to it's repository, which will
cause k to be replaced.  By the time B asks for k, it won't be there

This is not normal.  You need to explicitly include the keydump files on
the command line, not just the directory that includes them.

Not at present, but it should be fairly easy to parse out of the HTML, no?
