Description mgi 2015-10-30 16:01:28 UTC
Creating a new X509Certificate2 by using the public X509Certificate2(X509Certificate) ctor and passing it a X509Certificate2 does not preserve the private key.
While this might be intended behavior its not the way the .NET framework behaves.

This causes libraries to break which use this ctor as a copy constuctor, for example the MongoDB driver in SSL/TLS mode
