Is there any reason why we can't use Phar::setSignatureAlgorithm() after Phar::setStub()?

If there's a reason this shouldn't allowed, could the documentation please be updated to reflect this decision?

If this is a bug, it's breaking our ability to publish signed a .phar for defuse/php-encryption

Test script:

Expected result:
Silent success, but if I do this:

$phar = new \Phar(dirname(__DIR__).'/dist/defuse-crypto.phar');
$signature = $phar->getSignature();
var_dump($signature); shouldn't say its "hash_type" is "SHA-1"

Actual result:
PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught exception 'PharException' with message 'unable to copy stub of old phar to new phar "/var/www/defuse/php-encryption/dist/defuse-crypto.phar"' in /var/www/defuse/php-encryption/other/build_phar.php:37
Stack trace:
#0 /var/www/defuse/php-encryption/other/build_phar.php(37): Phar->setSignatureAlgorithm(16, '-----BEGIN PRIV...')
#1 {main}
  thrown in /var/www/defuse/php-encryption/other/build_phar.php on line 37

In our use case, this resolved the problem...

...but that's a workaround, not a solution.

I cannot reproduce this issue with PHP-7.4 on Windows.  That
operation should be allowed anyway, so either the bug has been
fixed in the meantime, or there is some relevant difference in our
environments, or maybe my reproduce script doesn't exactly
reproduce your build script.

So, if you still have this issue with any of the actively
supported PHP versions[1], please provide a minimal self-contained
test script.
