gpg: BAD signature from "Werner Koch <wk at>"
enigmail.js: Enigmail.decryptMessageEnd: Error in command execution

Barry posted about this to the Enigmail team earlier this afternoon. For
him it looked to be a problem with PGP/MIME messages that contain "-- ".

Only happens on signed PGP/MIME messages. Not signed and encrypted
PGP/MIME which works fine.  Barry reported that dropping back to 1.3.92
worked fine.

Will investigate more.
