they both have two certificate paths, especially the of sixxs.net would 
be interesting if someone can explain,
one path has 3 certs and the other path 4 certs ...

the certificate that issued the SSL cert. is the same in both samples above;
only the root CA cert is different, how would I generate such a situation?
