xmlsec is doing the right thing.  The XML standard says that, by default,
whitespace is significant.  So yes, if you add whitespace or extra
linebreaks, you will break the signature.  Don't do that. :)


PS:  Your email signature is onerous; please get it fixed.  Tell your
MIS/IT department that it reflects badly on your company.
