Temporarily missing EV indication with Verisign EV certificates

We have in the meantime received a currently valid EV audit. The update took effect Sep 3rd 1900 UTC, and the sites in question will start displaying the green EV bar again after the next time the browser contacts our server. This takes place on a weekly basis.
Users can rest assured that this does not signify any reduced trustworthiness for the sites in question, their certificates remain valid and are recognized by Opera. It is only the additional EV indication that will be off until the next time the browser downloads certificate information from our servers.
Unfortunately, there is a minor bug in the newly released Opera 10 that prevents the user from forcing a manual update of the rootstore in this version. This will be fixed in a maintenance build. A workaround for users that want an immediate update is to shut down Opera and delete/rename the file "tasks.xml" in the profile folder and then restart Opera.
