As per earlier post, bsddb exists in python2.3 but it looks like there
has been a rewrite of some sort.

I've now tracked this problem down to line 604 of the 
CertificateRepository.py file, which says:
	xext = crypto.X509Extension(name, critical, value)
and creates a Segmentation fault. It looks like crypto is a class from
OpenSSL_AG which is a wrapper around OpenSSL.

Thats looking way beyond my comfort level. Could someone in the
development look at it please? I'd enter it in bugzilla but it wasn't
clear which category it should go into - ClientUI?
