Bug#539283: ca-certificates-java: keytool fails when PEM file contains comments

This issue is a limitation of the default CertificateFactory in Java 6
(sun.security.provider.X509Factory). Starting with Java 7 comments are
properly skipped when parsing PEM files (see the readOneBlock() method
in X509Factory.java [1]).

Considering that OpenJDK6 is going to be removed for Jessie I suggest
marking this bug as wontfix.
