I can't reproduce this, adding this somewhere:

  printf ("vers %s %s\n", LIBGNUTLS_VERSION, gnutls_check_version (NULL));

Does print 2.5.7 for both, confirming that I really use 2.5.7.  So it
seems something else is required to reproduce this.  Can you try to
debug gnutls_x509_privkey_generate and see what happens?

Does 'certtool -p' trigger the same problem for you?
