I filled out the email form and sent it to assign at gnu.org, but I haven't
heard anything yet.  My experience is that it takes a week or two for the
papers to get to Germany by post.  If I don't hear anything soon, I'll
write to the copyright clerk again.

programs were too short for the DNs in my certificates, so nothing was

In `print_x509_certificate_info':


  char dn[128];


  char dn[256];

Same in `verify_cert2':

 char name[64];

changed to

  char name[256];
