FourierTransform of Sign^2 ?

I tried to evaluate the following Fourier Transform:

FourierTransform[Sign[y] Sign[y], y, q]

where Sign is the sign function. Instead of Sqrt[2 Pi]*DiracDelta[q],
Mathematica (v. 5.0, Mac) gives

-Sqrt[2 Pi]*DiracDelta[q]

with a minus sign. Is this a bug or I am doing something wrong here?
