Description Max Spevack 2004-11-29 16:16:37 EST
Description of problem:

In the case of certificate verification failing, I get this gunk, when
I should get a nicer message with the same meaning.  This traceback,
for example, was generated because the date on the box was off by
about a month. :-P

Deferring, not something I can change in the 360 timeframe.
