Possible SSL certificate usability issue

I ran into an issue today connecting subclipse to a repository and wanted
to run it past the list prior to reporting a bug. Please copy me directly
on any replies as I'm not a list subscriber.


Eclipse 3.1 / XP / JDK 1.4.2_09
Subclipse 0.9.33 installed via update manager; no previous subclipse
installs on this machine


1. Open the SVN Repository Exploring Perspective.

2. In the SVN Repository view, right-click and select New -> Repository

3. In the Location group, enter https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/myfaces,
and click Finish

4. In the 'Accept Digital Certificate' dialog, you should see a message:

Error validating server certificate forhttps://svn.apache.org:443:
- Unknown certificate issuer
(more info on certificate here)

5. Click "Accept Temporarily" in the dialog.

6. Dialogs close.

7. Click the '+' symbol next to the repository URL

8. Error appears in console view:

    RA layer request failed
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/repos/asf/myfaces/current'
svn: PROPFIND of '/repos/asf/myfaces/current': Server certificate
verification failed: issuer is not trusted (https://svn.apache.org)


Deleting the repository and creating it again via the SVN Repository view
did not fix the issue. Deleting all of the plugin configuration files
(.svnProviderState, dialog_settings.xml, and commitCommentHistory.xml)
allowed me to recreate the repository entry and accept the certificate
permanently. I didn't test to see if only one of those files would
resolve the problem.
