Bet you made /etc/swift a signing_dir. I don't know who came up
with this destructive idea first, but it even made its way into
upstream Puppet modules and it always ends like that.

Do this

 ls -ld /etc/swift
 grep signing_dir /etc/swift/proxy-server.conf

If it shows what I expect, edit /etc/swift/proxy-server.conf and
just kill that line.
