Evolution and GnuPG



I've noticed that Evolution (1.0-4) is very prone to report bad
signatures.  To start with I thought it was down to use by the sender of
a particular mailer, but I am beginning to doubt that.

I checked signatures of 3 signed messages on the debian-devel list that
I have read this morning.  2 are reported as bad and 1 as good:

Do other mail clients give similar results?
