Hello Kim,

Please report bugs into bugzilla.ximian.com as there is a good chance
they'll get lost and forgotten in the email archives.

> I have a certificate with the following subject information (from

> Serialnumber = PID:9802-2002-2-095874063962
> CN = Kim Hellan Larsen
> O = Ingen organisatorisk tilknytning
> C = DK
> If I use the
> System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Certificate.GetN
> ame() to get the subject from the certificate, I get:

> OID."

You get this with Mono ? or with MS ?

Well it means that Mono doesn't treat subjects like numbers... ;-)

This is indeed a bug, please attach the certificate with the bug report.
I'll fix ASAP.
