That is unfortunately a bit complicated due to different behaviour in
gpgsm and gpg.  I suggest to do what we do in gpgme/src/verify.c .  Of
course if would be useful to make sure that NEWSIG is also emitted by
gpg but you also need to take care of older gpg versions.

I assume adding NEWSIG to gpg has simply be forgotten.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
