OK, my fault, I had a gnutls_global_deinit at the wrong place in the
loop. I now have the following structure:

      gnutls_global_init ();
      gnutls_certificate_allocate_credentials (&xcred);
      loop {
          gnutls_init (&session, GNUTLS_CLIENT);
	  gnutls_set_default_priority (session);
	  gnutls_certificate_type_set_priority (session,
	  gnutls_credentials_set (session, GNUTLS_CRD_CERTIFICATE, xcred);
	  gnutls_transport_set_ptr (session,
					(gnutls_transport_ptr) sockfd);
	  gnutls_handshake (session);
          Work ...
	  gnutls_bye (channel.tls, GNUTLS_SHUT_RDWR);
	  gnutls_deinit (session);

      gnutls_global_deinit ();

And it works fine. Many thanks.
