I now have checked the signatures of all 27861 packages currently in
the repository. All packages are fine (key and sig) here so I assume it must be
something wrong with rpm itself.

rpm --checksig sle_11_sp1/Essentials/i586/libvpx0-0.9.7-1.pm.7.1.i586.rpm
sle_11_sp1/Essentials/i586/libvpx0-0.9.7-1.pm.7.1.i586.rpm: rsa sha1 (md5) pgp md5 OK

rpm definitely has bugs in the signature handling code. For example
at the moment it is not possible to resign packages with the rpm
version in factory.

Anyone else here seeing this problem on SLED11 32 bit?
