Why so you do. Did you expect that people would read it? As a rule, sigs 
fade into the background -- my mail client colours it grey, my news 
client colours it light blue, and I generally don't even notice it.

The Zen of Python applies here: explicit is better than implicit.

I suggest you raise an issue on the bug tracker. If you can't reproduce 
the bug, it's unlikely to be fixed, but you might get lucky.
