It's probably worth noting that your PGP signature for new Samba 2.2.7a *FAILS* verification (on both bzip2 and gzip'd files). The problem is not in the signature itself, but the filename:

	$ wget
	$ wget
	$ gpg --verify samba-2.2.7a_tar_gz.asc
  	gpg: no signed data
	gpg: can't hash datafile: file open error


	$ mv samba-2.2.7a_tar_gz.asc samba-2.2.7a.tar.gz.asc
	$ gpg --verify samba-2.2.7a.tar.gz.asc
	gpg: Signature made Wed Dec 11 07:38:39 2002 PST using DSA key ID 2F87AF6F
	gpg: Good signature from "Samba Distribution Verification Key <samba-bugs at>"

This was tested using GnuPG 1.2.1 on bash 2.05a.
