That maybe true, but that is not what the OP said exactly. He didn't
say GnuPG's S/MIME implementation passed, he said 'The S/MIME implementation
in KMail'. So, I asked what other MUAs were tested. KMail is not the
only MUA using GnuPG's S/MIME, Claws Mail does too. It's news to me if
Claws Mail was tested - as a member of the dev team I would have expected
to hear about it. So, I wondered, if KMail was the only MUA tested, then
saying it is the only one that passed seems like a bit of semantic trickery,
inferring, as it does, that others failed.

It isn't worth a nickle to two guys like you or me, 
but to a collector it is worth a fortune
