It looks to me like the enforcer is generating new keys and publishing
them; however the signer is maybe picking up an old signconf file and using
the keys in that.

When the enforcer finishes it sees that the signconf has changed and kicks
off the signer a second time.

Note that running "ods-ksmutil setup" does not remove files from the
signconf directory _or_ from softhsm, so the signer will happily run with
the old information.
