I was assuming only a malicious user would use a name containing "[GNUPG:] 
SOMETHING_ALLCAPS". In this case, if the code would check for 
BADSIG/TRUST_NEVER/TRUST_UNKNOWN messages first, the signature would still be 
rejected. Of course, in that case a non-malicious user with a name containing 
"[GNUPG:] BADSIG" etc. would still run into problems.

This 4th version fixes that by checking whether the search string is at the 
beginning of the status buffer (index 0) or at the beginning of a line 
(prefixed by '\n').
