In cause you wonder why the signature on my last email appears broken,
I guess you have just hit the following Mailman defect:

[ 815297 ] Breaking signatures in message/rfc822 attachement!
Reported 2003, patch solving part of the problem available, 
Debian had it last time I've looked.

Here is a patch that shows you what you could do to fix the mail so you
can verify the signature on on. (So I have not made this part of the riddle.)

Please lobby Mailman developers to take this security issue seriously. :(
