Client certificates & web start Error

Hi all,

Don't think many others have run into this problem (its quite specific being on jdk 1.5 using webstart and client certificates) so if anyone can help me they are a life saver.

I'm attempting to use web start to launch a thick client java app.
the app requires the clients authenticate themselves with
certificates. Everything worked fine when the certs were kept in the
browser and the app ran as an applet however things aren't so nice on
JDK 1.5 and web start.

Web start lists the client certificates on launch (that it has
imported from IE) and lets the user select the one they want to use.
However it makes the user select more than once (4 times for some
reason!) before failing with "SSLHandshakeException: Error signing
certificate verify".

I assumed webstart would be able to handle this as it found the
certificates afterall but it appears not to. Anyone got an idea what
this error means, what I could be doing wrong or workarounds to try?

Thanks in advance
