On version 1.2.4 and 1.3.5:

gpg -o sig-file --detach-sign file1 file2

gives a signature which is BAD if you do

gpg --verify sig-file file1 file2

but GOOD if you do 

gpg --verify sig-file file2 file1

(ie. if the files are specified in the reverse order
from the one in which the signature was originally

A bug or a feature?

Best, N.
