That is correct. The server only sends its server certificate, which is
directly signed by the self-signed root CA certificate.

The certificate that I pass to to gnutls-cli is that exact root
certificate. So IMHO, gnuTLS should have all the required trust
prerequisites to validate the certificate, shouldn't it? I will now also
try to make the server send the root CA cert as well in its response and
see if that changes the behavior.

Thanks for your assistance,
Kind regards,
