It looks ok from the PKCS#11 perspective. All the calls to SoftHSM are
returned with a positive answer containing the information it asked
for. There is nothing in the returned data that makes me suspect that
Java aborts the search. See output from PKCS#11-spy.

So I think it is more about the Java code and what that function call does.

(If you want to handle certificates, then I recommend using SoftHSM
trunk which now has support for it.)
