They make it to the list, however, they show up this way using OpenPGP/MIME:

Message was signed by cpollock at (Key ID: 0xE372A7DA98E6705C).
Warning: The signature is bad.

On the bad signature I see this when looking at the msg source:

Content-Type: text/plain;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
Content-Disposition: inline

On a good signature I see this:

Content-Type: text/plain;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
Content-Disposition: inline

Its even gotten so messed up that some have their signatures show bad when 
adding a sig to the bottom of the message, leaving it off shows the 
signature as valid.  The opinion on the list is that something is 
definately out of whack in the list software configuration.
