Passing on recent event of CA.cfg being clobbered / corrupted / truncated by
patching process (yum update)
This took few hours to find for I did not expect this to happen to a file
that normally would not be changed.
The clobbered file, CA.cfg, was truncated by over 500 lines.

Errors that shows on the console and the boot.log
