As ssltap is running, when it sees certificates going by, it copies 
them to files in the CWD with names cert.001, cert.002, ...
Every time the program is started, it starts over at cert.001.
When it opens the file for writing, it does not truncate the file,
so if the file previously existed and was longer than the new data
to be written, the result is a file that contains the new cert
followed by the leftovers of the old cert.  NSS programs that read
certs from files all reject such a file.  The solution is to truncate
the file.  Patch forthcoming.
