Description

Observed on the 16 February 2012 snapshot, i386 nanobsd version, running on a Soekris net4801.

Go to System -> Cert Manager -> Certificates.

Set Method: Create a Certificate Signing Request.

Notice the default Key Length is 2048 bits.

Now create a CSR that is invalid. A quick 'n' easy way to do this is to immediately click "Save".

Now notice that the Key Length has decreased to 512 bits for no apparent reason.

I tried something similar to create an internal CA and I didn't see this bug; in other words, the Key Length correctly remained at 2048 bits even after my inputs were rejected.
