To clarify I was signing a file as I was encrypting it.  I'm not sure
what sample I could provide besides the prints to standard out.

Not enough information to say.  Please show an example of an old  
signature, and a new signature.  It has nothing to do with "DSA" or  
"DSA/SHA".  That's just a human-readable message.  Unless you did  
special configuration, all DSA signatures are DSA/SHA.
