Actually, you were right: my power cable was not quite plugged in. ;-)
Adding a `set_x509_trust_file ()' call on the server side fixed the
I was not expecting such behavior, though. Roughly, I had copied my
OpenPGP example (where `GNUTLS_CERT_REQUIRE' worked fine) and replaced
"openpgp" with "x509". The fact that we need to specify a trust file in
X.509 and not in the OpenPGP case for `GNUTLS_CERT_REQUIRE' to work
creates a slight asymmetry.
