I will add a comment/description. The short expl is that that call to gnutls_cipher_add_auth() is bad and should either end in an assert() in nettle or (if nettle was built with -NDEBUG) returns an error.

If the assert() triggers, the (child) process abort()s and the parent recognizes the status code as OK (it was an expected failure). If the function returns 0/success, we call fail() because an error was expected.

The testmode is to test different parts of the code. We could instead use three different functions, but that means a lot of code duplication.
