Indeed the example in the docs is wrong, and so is the current behaviour.

The example shows "round-tripping" using ssl.cert_time_to_seconds() and then time.ctime(), except that it is bogus as it takes a GMT time and ctime() returns a local time ("""Convert a time expressed in seconds since the epoch to a string representing local time""").

Still, we should only fix it in 3.4, as code written for prior versions may rely on the current (bogus) behaviour.
