When running the following command, puppet certificate also generate and seems to send a CSR to the puppet master for a key that matches the FQDN in addition to the one requested.

puppet certificate generate jenkins-example-com --ssldir ~/.mcollective.d/credentials --ca-location remote --ca_server puppet.example.com

This is causing issue if you already have your machine signed by the puppet master. This didn't seem to be the case with puppet 2.7.3

I'm also experiencing this issue and it is stopping me being able to register new mcollective user certificates from the example http://docs.puppetlabs.com/mcollective/deploy/standard.html#managing-client-credentials

Puppet Version 3.4.3

This looks to be a dup of PUP-2018, marking this as such.
