After running some tests, I can confirm that it should
be two dashes at the beginning of the line, then space,
then newline, then the signature. (It is actually
possible to have an empty signature but then the marker
to indicate the start of the signature doesn't make any
sense.)

In all other cases, at least with Gnus, it doesn't
work: e.g., a space before the first dash, or a char
after the space, or the signature being on the same
line (i.e., that coincides with the previous fail
case).
