A couple of comments. 

    1. A quick fix. Since your patch is not applied. I tried to change
       my setting. To my surprise
       (mml-secure-smime-sign-with-sender nil)
       *did not help*, although I am using smime not opengpg.
       But
       (mml-secure-openpgp-sign-with-sender nil)
       *did help*.
       This should be mentioned in the documentation (NEWS and in the
       relevant doc strings)

    2. I am not sure what will happen with older pgp versions. A quick
       fix would be to set the above variable to nil

    3. I think this issue should be discussed on the devel list.

    4. Who and when your patch will be applied?


[Snip]...

Given that circumstance, is your change really worth the effort?
