Comment 3 for bug 6761

severity 176062 serious
thanks

This bug still seems to be present and it is preventing me from renewing
the cert for Alioth:

[tornado;~/spi/CA]-113> openssl ca -out newcert.pem -infiles alioth.debian.org.csr
Using configuration from /usr/lib/ssl/openssl.cnf
Enter pass phrase for ./CA/private/cakey.pem:
Check that the request matches the signature
Signature ok
The Subject's Distinguished Name is as follows
countryName :PRINTABLE:'US'
stateOrProvinceName :PRINTABLE:'Indiana'
localityName :PRINTABLE:'Indianapolis'
organizationName :PRINTABLE:'Software in the Public Interest'
organizationalUnitName:PRINTABLE:'Debian'
commonName :PRINTABLE:'alioth.debian.org'
emailAddress :IA5STRING:'<email address hidden>'
Certificate is to be certified until Apr 9 11:03:40 2005 GMT (365 days)
Sign the certificate? [y/n]:y
failed to update database
TXT_DB error number 2

All permissions are correct. An strace reveals that openssl is not even
trying to do anything on disk:
