YOu misunderstand my point: The problem is not that the messagebox "The IP 
address of the host www.ba-ca.at does not match the one the certificate was 
issued to." appears. In fact, that's what it is supposed to do. The problem 
is, that konqueror does not store the certificate so that I do not get that 
messagebox again.

When you click "Continue" on the messagebox, then the next messagebox appears 
saying:

"Would you like to accept this certificate forever without being prompted?"

Click "Forever" and close konqueror. At this point the site certificate should 
have been saved to ~/.trinity/share/config/ksslpolicies - but it is not.

Now restart konqueror, go to the same address as before and you get the 
messagebox "The IP address of the host www.ba-ca.at does not match the one 
the certificate was issued to." - which should not appear as the site 
certificate should have been stored in ~/.trinity/share/config/ksslpolicies. 

This problem is quite anoying, as it appears on all self certified sites and 
sites.
