This would be important to know, if confirmed.
Since you mentioned "Java 7", I will point out there is a known issue with Java 7 and bundles that have "nested jars" that will cause dual downloads.
It has nothing to do with "expired certificates" but with a subtle change in Java 7 such that nested jars cannot be unpacked with Java 7.
No "general solution" has been found, but it is expected to cause more "dual downloads" of pack.gz files plus then the jar file (once it is discovered the pack.gz file can not be correctly unpacked),
when Java 7 is being used.
On the Java 7 pack.gz issue: While it is recommended that no one have nested jars in the first place :) if you must (and, there are some legitimate cases), it is recommended (for most cases) that the bundle provider add an eclipse.inf file to the META-INF directory, and in it specify
But, back to expired certificate, if you confirm the expired certificate causes this dual download (independent of nested jars) it would be worth a cross-project bug, where we could discuss what to do about it, if anything.
