#LPT: When evacuating an airplane, leave your bags, luggage behind. It is unbelievable this has to be explicitly stated. Your selfishness will kill people. It just happened in Russia. 40+ pax died but a lot of those that made it out had their luggage with them. Unbelievable.

Well, I fixed the Addon-Problem with the
...and I had a look inside what it does... (adding an intermediate cert to certdb and reverify all addons)
So, does this mean every Addon can add any cert if it thinks this is funny? Isn't this another big security hole?
