Well, that's a hint at where in the code one should look for the bug, it 
would seem.  Filed a bug yet?  If so this should probably be noted 
there.  If not, please do (and post the number or URL here so I can CC 

... Which has me thinking about that executable option...  I don't claim 
to code anything but scripts, but you're making that bug bite itch here, 
and as they say, open source programmers are often scratching their own 
itches.  I could possibly come up with a script that would echo a few 
backspace/delete characters, before inserting a text sig based on what's 
in a config file...  It's not itching badly enough for me to scratch that 
yet, but you've definitely increased the itch factor! =:^)

Of course my script would be bash, which isn't going to be all that 
useful on MSOSs, but it'd help on Linux, and could be adapted if 
necessary for other *ix.  (I've never bothered with the distinction 
between POSIX sh and bash, which is all I use here, so I only ever claim 
to write the latter and let others try it on the former... making 
whatever changes they find necessary... if they wish.)
