Maybe you forgot to add "force-v3-sigs" to your ~/.gnupg/options? According to the manual this is option is needed to make PGP 5 happy with data signatures like the above. And don't forget that "--openpgp" resets this option. Have a look at the signature of this message, it should be accepted by=20 PGP 5. If it isn't your problem is not GnuPG but PGP 5, because it is=20 checked correctly using PGP 5 here.
