The same with me. Your signature is the only one which Enigmail cannot 
verify correctly.
The error message says:
gpg: Unterschrift vom 12/16/04 22:17:17, DSA Schlüssel ID 010A57ED
gpg: FALSCHE Unterschrift von "Werner Koch <wk at>"

Thunderbird 0.9 DE
EnigMail 0.89.0
GnuPG 1.2.5
Windows Millennium

I have had no problems with any signatures till now.
Can you tell us, what went wrong?
