Hi Reece,

thanks for looking into failures on Vista.

I think you're probably right that Vista's changed.  By definition,
that makes it "right."  I suspect what it's doing is guessing that
something is base64-encoded even if it doesn't begin with the
"-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----" or whatever header.  It'd be interesting
to see what format Vista guesses the encoded data was in when the
encoded data have no header.  I don't have access to a Vista machine
myself, so it'd be hard for me to fix it.

Would you mind having a go?  Thanks,
