Yes, that's probably the explanation.  There was some discussion on
debian-devel.  Basically, those of us who were using inline PGP signatures
via various means such as Mailcrypt in Gnus ran into the problem of
quoted-printable encoding being applied after the signature, which
invalidated the signature.  The workaround is to encrypt the mail as well
as sign it; the real solution is to use PGP/MIME, since the standard then
says what to do to interoperate.
