It seems that the problem is rather in the server side.
I updated the git to version 1.7.9.rc2, but it still gives the same
error at pull.  Meanwhile, I could pull a signed tag from a local
tree.  Or I'm overlooking something obvious.

BTW, the pull of a signed tag gives always a merge commit even if it
can be fast-forwarded.  The --ff option doesn't work, too.
This is the intended behavior, AFAIK.

OTOH, we don't want to see too many merge commits in a straight
development line while the development phase.  So, pulling signed tags
from you while development might be not always ideal, if we want to
keep the sound git trees better in sync.
