What version of OpenSSL are you using? Since OpenSSL 0.9.7c and later
this is present:
if (EVP_MD_CTX_type(mdc) == md_type)
/* Workaround for some broken clients that put the signature
* OID instead of the digest OID in digest_alg->algorithm
if (EVP_MD_pkey_type(EVP_MD_CTX_md(mdc)) == md_type)
so the case you are referring to should be handled. If for some reason
you are using a newer version of OpenSSL and still see this issue please
send me the PKCS#7 structure OpenSSL doesn't like and I'll analyse it.
