No, that’s just a warning, it happens on every ballot, though you only see it
if there’s also another error. You’re likely running into the same problem I
did, which is that the RMS ballot has lines long enough to be wrapped under
quoted printable, whereas the DPL election fits within the line limit. Are you
using an inline signature rather than a detached signature? The former is not
robust against MTA wrapping, but the latter is, and is what’s recommended.
