When I start a new message (via "Compose" or "Reply") the blank
lines appear in the Compose window after the template (if any) but
before my signature.

Here are some screenshots illustrating my settings and the problem:

My signature file, showing a conspicuous lack of leading newlines:

Some further information:  I find that if I manually change the
signature separator to something else, apply the change, then remove it
again and apply the change, then new messages I compose get two leading
newlines rather than three.  This behaviour persists until I restart
Claws Mail, after which it goes back to inserting three newlines again.
