Hello Jason,
 Unfortunately these backtraces don't provide much information. You'll
need debugging symbols (most probably included in your distribution as a
separate package). Also the version of gnutls being used is important.
It would be best to try with the latest released version.

However, the only reason for a mutex call to fail is if the mutex isn't
initialized. Is gnutls_global_init() executed successful in the program
you use?
