There are a number of variables here.  The two main ways that are used
to sign messages with PGP are PGP/MIME and inline (or traditional) PGP
(this message is signed using inline PGP).

Which method is the poster using?  What settings do you have for
pass_mime_types (on the Content filtering admin page)?

I send signed messages in both formats to various mailman lists
without the text disappearing.  I know that some mailman setups will
break the signature, but I haven't had any eat the message body so
