I just ran into some strange behaviour of Opera in conjuction with 
gnutls. It does not like accessing pages with self-signed certificates.

Hopefully the following is reproducible
1) try an gnutls https server, e.g. https://www.gnutls.org:5555/
    with an self-signed certificate

2) accept the certificate for the session
[i can not see what this server produces then, mine gives an
  An error was encountered at the TLS Finished packet calculation. ]

3) hit stop, then reload and everything works.

Also this does not occur when the self-signed certificate is 

Tested with some old versions of opera5 + 6 and version 7.23

Can anyone reproduce this? Even better, is anyone able to fix it? :)
