There are two problems: One is that gpgsm does not import a certifciate
if the trailing line feed after the "-----END CERTIFICATE----" is

The other is due to the certificate itself as you correcly identified.
That certificate uses a low public exponent of 3 which might trigger the
bug.  I need to debug that further.
