signature decoding problem

Hey everybody, =)

It was pointed out to me (thanks Jean-Francois) that my signatures are 
coming out bad on this (and other!) lists for some reason. I haven't 
had any trouble in the past with using this key for signing or 
encrypting or anything like that.

However, if I grab any message that I send (I grabbed some from 
sent-mail and some test ones I sent to myself) I get the following 
errors from gpg:

gpg: can't handle these multiple signatures
gpg: can't handle these multiple signatures

However, it seems to only happen with e-mail sent through this 
particular client, as far as I can tell. (I'm using kmail from KDE on 
this machine). I can send e-mail from other mailers and I can decode 
them successfully, and I can run "cat <anything> | gpg --clearsign | 
gpg" and get perfect results.

I'm still a bit perplexed, though. I could understand if my signature 
was being mangled, or the message was being modified, or something of 
that sort... but I don't get that the signature is *bad*, I get the 
above "multiple signatures" error message.

Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this?

(Just to try to get some diagnostics out of the thing, if I take an 
e-mail message that gives the above errors, and then take a message 
signed fresh with --clearsign on the command line, and run them both 
through gpg --list-packets, the output is identical:)
