I do guess that micalg and boundary parameters were on the same line in
Ricardo's sent mail, and an SMTP server rewrapped it.
We went around this problem in Claws by using shorter boundaries, like

Content-Type: multipart/signed; boundary=Sig_1jeX6lOwvmCRCbE3EgATNUp;
 protocol="application/pgp-signature"; micalg=PGP-SHA1
