Genady:
What file name does your signature file(s) have?

"signature file of my accound is deleted"
and 
"The signature files becomes empty"
-- which of both statements is the correct one? Is the file still there but
empty? (It sound like this is the case, but I want to be sure)

The default folder of signature files should be changed at least,
until this problem is fixed.
