Public bug reported:

in the two identities i use for the signature the same text file. it
contains something like this:


and several lines more with my official address. i write emails in txt
mode only and i also automatically attach vCard by default in both

if i first write the email text and then switch the identity to my
second one i have some time ago noticed that the last line of the text
above the signature vanished. the situation got worse, nowadays two or
more lines can disappear, even whole paragraphs.

summary: text above signature vanishes upon identity switch.

desired behavior: written text above the signature should not change
upon identity switch.
