Your signature verified fine here.
I had this exact same trouble with the Pan news reader. Never really
explored the causes in any detail, but I did notice the same article
displayed in Pan and another news client were word wrapped differently.
I assumed that GnuPG/PGP operations were performed on a temporary copy
of the original, either generated from the display or using some
"clipboard" facility, and discarded Pan as a client that messes around
with message text the same way it messes around with the display of
message headers. :-(
