GPGMail nightly Build doesn't sign replies to unsigned mails.

When I use GPGMail nightly on Lion, replies to unsigned emails are not automatically signed. Since I want to sign all outgoing email, this is a major hassle. I can work around it by downgrading to 2.0a31 (from the stable 20120318 installer).
Is this a bug or intended functionality?

    Hi Ludger,

    could you tell me what exact version of GPGMail you've now installed?

    It's certainly a bug, but we haven't changed this behaviour one bit in that build, but simply re-use's default behaviour.
    I haven't seen that problem before.

    This happens to me using GPGMail build 112163. Replies to encrypted + signed emails are still automatically encrypted and signed, but replies to unsigned + unencrypted emails are not.
    I have not tried replies to unsigned + encrypted or signed + unencrypted mails.

    Did you upgrade to 10.7.5 in the meantime?
    There's a good chance that Apple changed this behavior in their S/MIME implementation, which is then automatically used in GPGMail as well.
    Will be different in future versions.

    No, all screenshots were taken in 10.7.5 (11G63).
    I can use 20.a31 (stable) in 10.7.5 by manually editing the Info.plist of the .mailbundle file.

    If the stable version works for you, I'd continue with that one for now.
    We'll release a much more advanced 10.7 version soon, which will also fix this problem.

    Thanks. There's already one. I'll combine them.
