Close - the release scripts now sign the tar.gz files directly with
gzsig[1], but I erroneously added this *after* the gpg/sha1 signature
generation. Since it modified the .gz file, it broke the signature.

This was noticed very quickly, but getting the updated signature
distributed to the mirrors took some time because the master ftp
server had "issues".
