The warning on stderr shouldn't have been there. A module that is
being loaded should either succeed loading or fail with a return code.
However this is not under my control to suppress. The PKCS #11 support
(this is about smart cards) is transparent and system wide because we
want all applications that use gnutls to be able to use smart cards
transparently (e.g. you can load your private key from a smart card
the same way you'd load it from a file).
