The answer actually is that this is a known issue, because some fixes that
have been applied to the PGP driver didn't get applied to the S/MIME
driver. One of the reasons is that the openssl extensions doesn't work like
the PGP command line interface that we use in the PGP driver. I guess some
operations simply can't be done with the openssl extension but must be done
by the command line too.

Yes, that would be great.

Yeah, that's probably connected to 1.

Not that I know of.
