Hello all,

I ran into this a short time ago as well. Not surprising but my 
certificate expired at midnight the day before I had a very important 
demonstration. Checked everything exhaustively the day before of course. 
Mr. Murphy was on the ball!

I think it would be ***very*** useful to check the expiration date of a 
certificate on proxy creation and remind the user that they should 
require a new one if the expiration date is drawing near. This is going 
to happen a lot in the near future (the first round of AG certs are 
going to start expiring) and I can see this causing some real problems 
in the near future!!! This is especially true for the non-expert user!
