hi, mr. brooks --

no, this problem occurs whenever you sign &
encrypt a message, regardless of whether you
sign or wrap first.

i don't know how the problem manifest, if you
want to encrypt a message for which you'll send
a detached signature separately.  i didn't look
closely at the detached-signature feature.
