evolution's gpg support is BROKEN. support of inline pgp WILL NEVER BE
FIXED. mime will be fixed in next release (there is big brokenness, but
it works sometimes).

In my experience ximian considers gpg rather low priority and feels that
the standard is broken, so they are reluctant to change their
architecture (my opinion is that their architecture is wrong - but not
being a evo hacker I wont start that discussion again...).

So I am anxiously awaiting the kmail with PGP/MIME support to hit
Debian/sid (it's currently only in cvs), and then will probably switch
to kmail.

To summarize: please do not report 'bad' signatures if it's only
evolution saying they are bad.
