Fixed. As a workaround use
gpg --no-armor --verify
The problem was that one pass signatures are not detected as binary
data but it tries to apply the unarmor filter. There should be
a backoff method in case no armor header has been found, but this
get's complicated so we stick to the current (fixed) solution.
