This occurs with 3.2.10. I believe it also occurred with 3.2.9. I'll
recompile with more debug granularity (I'm on gentoo hardened) and

gnutls_global_init is executed.
What's interesting is that the error only happens when weechat loads
the python plugin. I'm not too familiar how the python plugin works
internally, but I imagine it's possible it spawns a thread. Could
there be some situation in which all new threads also need to call
gnutls_global_init? I'm speculating here, but maybe it has something
to do with this...
