The solution is to use "gpg --comment '' ..." to disable the armor commentline or use sed to cut it out later.

That's of course what I have added to mutt's default gnupg
configuration now. BTW, it would be nice if it was possible to entirely disable that header with gnupg, which doesn't seem to be the case.

So it is definitely not a standard problem.

I disagree.

It should be possible to rely upon the ASCII-armored text OpenPGP applications generate when creating e-mail messages or anything else which is supposed to cross system boundaries. Armor should for that reason be invariant and robust under the usual kinds of character set conversions and corruptions.

After all, that's the entire point of ASCII-armor...
