That turns out to be more complicated than on first sight.  This error
is from checking that BAD signature - in this case gpg emits a BADSIG
status line and calls exit with failure; in trun a STATUS_FAILURE is

Now that could be fixed GnuPG but at quite some pales.  Not the right
solution.  I need to apply fixes to GPGME as well.  And that should also
be backported to a 1.10.1 (actually I planned to release 1.11.0 this

Please stay tuned for a GPGME fix.  I hope that you can test it too.
