Package: libgnutls26
Followup-For: Bug #514578

I have a similar issue with the recent update.  Mutt and msmtp have been
working fine for years with my email provider, Tuffmail.  I use SSL/TLS
for IMAP and SMTP.

After the recent libgnutls26 update, I could not log in to IMAP using
SSL -- Mutt would complain it could not save the certificate in my
~/.mutt/mutt-certs even thought the proper cert was already there.
Then, when sending, msmtp complained that the cert was invalid.  Again,
everything was working fine, my configs had not changed, and my provider
had not changed their certs.

I downgraded to libgnutls26 2.4.2-4 and now everything works again.
