That depends on whether trailing spaces are in the message or not.
Sometimes I hit the space key at the end of a line or due to cut+paste
spaces are added.  That is an Enigmail issue.  In general MUAs should
protect important trailing spaces using QP encoding (e.g. for the 
signature delimiter "-- ") so that they are not relevant for OpenPGP
or PGP/MIME.  I will check whether my MUA (Gnus) does it right.
