OK...  it's possible an SSL dialog was on another desktop... :P  Based on the
ridiculous number of dialogs I'm having to accept, I think that is most likely
what initially happened...

Anyway, the gmail cert issue is driving me nuts because I have multiple gmail
accounts on each CM instance and each account goes through this...  :P :P

Ah...  Thanks Charles!  That seems to have stopped the issue...   I've
unchecked one account to see if the cert changes have stopped...


"Automatically accept unknown valid SSL certificates" seems oxymoronic...  In
the screen shot, they appear valid and 'known' (however that might be
defined)...  Could this be better worded?  Maybe: "Automatically accept valid
SSL certificates" -- what's "unknown" about these gmail certs?

>From comment 5: When a "new" cert's expiration date is sooner, would it be
acceptable[1] to ignore it and keep the current, longer lasting one? [without
requiring an option?]

[1] Tried reading part of RFC5426; but I don't have enough experience with
certs to grok it.
