I am signing with a 1024 Bit DSA key, but I can reproduce the error with
all keys.
The error only happens under Windows and only if the last line of the
message I am signing is not empty (i.e. the message does not end with
CR - LF).
When I sign a message that does not end with CR - LF GnuPG adds a
CR - LF pair.
That triggers the bug. When I delete the CR (and not the LF) which was
added by GnuPG the signature becomes valid !
So that seems to be the problem.
