Update of sr #107660 (project gnutls):

                  Status:               Need Info => Wont Do                


Follow-up Comment #3:

Unfortunately not :( I just wanted to test what was the issue. gnutls 2.12.0
changed the semantics of gnutls_transport_set_lowat() and the default value is

There are two solutions.
1. Quick fix. Programs that require another value must explicitly call:
gnutls_transport_set_lowat (session, 1);

after (gnutls_init()). 

2. Long-term fix. Because later versions of gnutls abolish the functionality
of using the system call select() to check for gnutls pending data, the
has to be used to achieve the same functionality.
