OK, on the basis of this note (and yes, our client cert pkcs12 files
usually contain the CA cert as well), I regenerated the pkcs12 file for
my cert without the CA cert in it, and the problem has been worked
around. We don't really need the CA cert to be in the pkcs12 files, so
this will work for us. Thanks to everyone who helped solve this problem :-)
