Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos started a new discussion on lib/x509/output.c: https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls/-/merge_requests/1205#note_302584308

>  				break;

>  			     gnutls_strerror(err));
> +			/* After addf to get error message */
> +			if (err == GNUTLS_E_ASN1_DER_ERROR)

Given that the loop is infinite by design do we want to break on this error only or on any error? I'm thinking that a different error could potentially reactivate the infinite loop.
