A 'bad signature' can be caused by many different factors, one frequent
cause being a text wrap problem.
When a message is not only signed but encrypted+signed, the encryption
process *might* write off the cause of a bad signature.
You might try sending a signed message to the list; maybe some clue
could be found.
I have found on the keyservers two keys that seem to belong to you:
(1) Robert Smits <labour at telus.net>
1024 bit RSA key 49E9AF38, created: 2006-04-19
(2) Robert Smits <labour at telus.net>
1024 bit DSA key E7629731, created: 2005-12-31
