Re: svn update via HTTPS works 95% of the time, then randomly shanks, "issuer not trusted"

Long shot here... this is probably off base, as I am not that experienced
with lower-level SSL problems, but are you by chance using an issuer that
provides an intermediary certificate?

For example, to install an SSL cert from GoDaddy, you have to also include
the gd_bundle.crt. The Wikipedia article below makes me wonder if there is
just some network hiccups sometimes, trying to validate your certificate
chain authority.
