I don't know this tool.

I just did a verify:

  $ gpg --verify -v x
  gpg: armor header: Hash: SHA256
  gpg: armor header: Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (MingW32)
  gpg: armor header: Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla -
  gpg: Good signature from "Javier Fern.%G�.%@dez Almirall (aka"
  gpg: textmode signature, digest algorithm SHA256
and it works fine.  Maybe the tool can't cope with the base64 encoded

You need to do something like

  mimencode -u | gpg --verify

However the mail reader usually does this for you.
