Summary0000482: Certificates are automatically revoked on deletion of email address
DescriptionWhen deleting an email address certificates which propoably contain this address are automatically revoked without confirmation.

I tested the following:
created and confirmed new email address (
created a certificate for this email address
deleted the email address from the account.
The cert view and the accout history show the certificate as revoked.

The problem was fixed with some other bug in the meantime.
