Tou run into this error:

      /* In this case at least one signatures was not created perhaps
         due to a bad passphrase etc.  Thus the entire message is
         broken and should not be used.  We add the already created
         signatures to the invalid signers list and thus this case can
         be detected.  */
      TRACE_LOG3 ("result: invalid signers: %u, signatures: %u, count: %u",
                  inv_signers, signatures, gpgme_signers_count (ctx));

Please enable gpgme debugging at level 3 or higher to get detailed
