Okay, I bet I know what the problem is. I need to talk to some of the
Enigmail folks. I think they may have a PGP/MIME text
canonicalization bug that one of the changes in 1.4 is aggravating.
In the meantime, you can work around the problem with the attached
patch to GnuPG. This isn't a real fix for the problem, but should get
you going with 1.4 again until the real fix is ready.
