Throwing a "me too" in here, I've also suffered from the main SSL certs
being reported as expired by SGE, even though they're still valid. I
would just generate new ones as needed. I will say that I had it happen
twice relatively quickly, and it hasn't happened for a while since. This
was also with 6.1.
