Thanks.  Haven't had the opportunity to try it yet.  I have a general
question regarding FIPS mode, about the way it works.  Is there a need
to modify all applications using GnuTLS to add FIPS init code, or is
there some automatic function being called when the library is loaded
(or otherwise used) by an application, that will execute all
FIPS-related checks and tests ?
