All four of Miro's sigs were fine for me. Yours, however, wasn't.

One of Miro's:

Good signature from: Miroslav Rovis (consacrated to Heart of Jesus)
            created: Sun 18 Sep 14:53:59 2016
WARNING: We have NO indication whether the key belongs to the person named as
+shown above
Fingerprint: FCF1 3245 ED24 7DCE 4438  55B7 EA98 8488 4FBA F0AE

Yours on the message I'm responding to:

*BAD* signature from: Jean-Christophe Bach (personal address)
                 aka: Jean-Christophe Bach ( <jcbach@???>
                 aka: Jean-Christophe Bach (
                 aka: Jean-Christophe Bach (Personal - LDN infrastructure)
             created: Thu  1 Jan 10:00:00 1970

But it's probably just an intermittent thing unless it keeps happening
with your config.

As for mine, I'm running Mutt 1.7.0 (2016-08-17), gpg (GnuPG) 2.1.15,
libgcrypt 1.7.3 and GPGME 1.7.0-beta292 with the GPGME options
compiled into Mutt.


P.S. Murphy's law dictates that the sig on this message of mine be
bad, no matter how consistently it works elsewhere. ;)
