Thanks for testing this. I can also confirm that the latest boinc-client 
together with ca-certificates/20080617 works with WCG.

Right, boinc-client's postinst script creates this symbolic link that points 
to /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt.

I guess you removed boinc-client back then but did not purge it. 
boinc-client's postrm script only purges /var/lib/boinc-client if the user 
explicitly wants that.

Me too.
