Ah, thanks!  I've never run into that before.

I guess the underlying problem is that \parfillskip can't be applied to
paragraphs set ragged left?  So it doesn't affect single lines only, but
using \RaggedLeft from ragged2e or \raggedleft from LaTeX3 (or is it
LaTeX2e*?) _almost always_ results in an underfull box message.[1]

\documentclass{article}
\input{xinitials.sig}
\begin{document}
\raggedleft
This paragraph is ok:
some text and some text some text and some text
some text and some text some text and some text
some text and some text some
\par
This paragraph is underfull:
some text and some text some text and some text
some text and some text some text and some text
some text
\par
\end{document}

Best regards,

[1]  I don't think it's a fortunate decision to change the meaning of
\raggedright in LaTeX3.  I'll send another mail about that later.
