I still wonder why gpg-1.0.2 with rsa.c does not accept the sig. The strange thing I noticed about this signature is:
:signature packet: algo 1, keyid 0ECD082462885875
version 3, created 962515123, md5len 5, sigclass 01 ^^ that it uses textmode which is somewhat strange for a detached signatures. textmode does not has the data asis but translates LF to CR,LF and strips white spaces - there is no reason to use it for binary files. There are a couple of workarounds in GnuPG to cope with all the different behaviour of the different PGP flavours regarding the textmode.
