Possibly this wasn't at that list at all, I should
look at the original reference myself. If "-newca"
did ask for a password, this "CA signing" wasn't needed.

That is wrong at the original, it must be:
Remember also to modify your openssl.cnf file so that
'nsCertType' is set to 'server'.
Then Netscape won't complain so much, and MicroSloth (IE5 ?)
won't just groak with mystic error code without clear
explanation... (We *really* scratched our heads at
my office for a few days with that..)
