NIST's new test suite has some certs with UTF8 encoded components in the subject names. For one of them, NSS seems unable to translate the DER subject name to an ASCII string. This is apparently a failure of CERT_NameToAscii. It shows up in programs like pp or vfychain when they attempt to print the cert's subject name. I will attach the offending cert
The problem is that the CommonName in the cert's subjcet name exceeds the maximum permitted length, which is 64 characters. There is a separate bug about that. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 220855 ***
