That is a _seriously_ broken tool that you're using.  How are you to
know whether something important (but not signed) is included after a
signed message?  What if someone (who doesn't use GPG) forwarded a
signed message to you and then made comments after the included
message?  Ugh!  I'd try to get your system fixed and use mutt, or some
other working MUA...

I would like someone (*Hint*) to use the '-- ' standard for their
"advertising", oops, sorry, signature.  Try Googling on
sig.etiquette...  :)

(Now I'm off to have another cup of coffee to stop being so grumpy...)
