Since a few days, my pidgin complains:
> Invalid certificate authority signature
> The certificate chain presented by rsi.hotmail.com does not have a valid digital signature from the Certificate Authority from which it claims to have a signature.
People from IRC answered:
> it's "known" in as much as MSN/Hotmail changed their signing certificates, and your system/distribution may not have the newest version
> the newest versions of pidgin ship with the correct certificates, but your system may override those
Note: I am using stable machine, and unmasked 2.5.2 to get benefit of various bugfixes.
This bug may be linked with bug 244374 , or with any bug dealing about ca-certs.
Please, fix this bug before stabilisation (bug 248137 ) but do not make it block.

Please try to backup your ~/.purple/certificates/x509/tls_peers and remove the certificates from that folder. Then restart pidgin. Theoritically, you'll see a window at startup asking whether you want to accept a rsi.hotmail.com new certificate. Please, reply, with any results.
Hm, but maybe finally, I'm the one who didn't understand what you're trying to explain here. I'll assign the bug to the proper team, for further investigation.
dhp@moon-gen-3:~/.purple/certificates/x509$ mv tls_peers tls_peers_arch_2008_12_15
I get the same error message, only one about MSN, and exactly the same.
I would have been surprised the problem is my user profile. The problem may rather be in /etc/ca-certificates/ ... IIRC.
Isn't this a duplicate of bug #237250?
