When does new certificate's valid from field always date a few minutes in past?

I imagine that was the time on your CA's clock at the time it was issued.

nope, I have CA set to autoissue and I install cert as soon as I can, everything altogether doesn't take more than a minute, but 'valid from' is 10 minutes int the past. –  grega g Oct 22 '09 at 6:23
