My MUA said the signature on that message was corrupt too, although your
signature on this message was fine.  It is possible that a transit MTA,
or the mailing list software, corrupted the signature or altered the
attachment, although this is rare.  Maybe you could try sending the same
message, with the same patch, directly to me?  If that works, I should
be able to see what the difference is, and possibly also guess what
causes it.
