several nntp users on the openSUSE forum have discussed an unexpected
change in the line preceding the nntp signature from "--" to "- --"
when using several different Linux mail/usenet clients and signing the
message with OpenPGP..

while it doesn't seem to be a problem with the clients (and i highly
doubt it to be an openSUSE problem) i failed in trying to google and
learn if:

1. it is a bug in OpenPGP
2. if a bug, if it has been reported
3. the extra "- " just what the nntp/pgp RFC calls for

I can't imagine openpgp nor gnupg needing or wanting to change the
content of the message being signed.
