I believe WK is using an additional subkey to sign, that might be the
- - WK's signature verified on Thunderbird 1.0 (Macintosh), Mac OS X
10.3.7, GnuPG 1.4.0. Bad signature.
- - verified with Apple's Mail.app/GnuPG 1.4.0/GPGMail 1.0.2 (Stéphane
Corthésy). Verifies OK.
Meaning good signature.
- - verified with Apple's Mail.app/Services>PGP 8.1, "unknown key", and
states signature's date and time. WK's key is included in PGP 8.1
Keyring. This is why I think this is a subkey signature.
For all it is worth,
