kcertpart displays incorrect subject and issuer information

Bug Description

Whenever I display a cert in konqueror using the kcertpart, it displays completely erroneous information for the subject and issuer.

It always says that both the subject and the issuer are for a (fictional, I assume) Canadian company, as shown on the attached screenshot.

Bug #334191 seems to be explicitly talking about operational failures in SSL certs.

This bug is about a non-operational failure in a non-SSL cert.

How sure are you that this is really a dupe? I'm not saying it's not a dupe, but it's certainly not obvious from the info in bug #334191 that it is. Do you have an explicit reason for believing it to be a dupe?

Yeah, the fact that it's pulling up the Acme Co (which is the non-existant-in-reality fallback) is evidence of it not working at all. The upstream bug linked to the report lists this as a symptom, too.
