GNUTLS handshake errors and memory leaks (ECDHE related?)

Great! After applying the patch handshake leaks seem to be gone. Logs

One more note about errors. gnutls handshake errors -24 appear one by one
and seem to correspond to ab errors. Errors -10 and -110 appear in a bunch
right after ab finishes. It might be specific to how ab works. It could
have opened more connections than it should for example. I will further
investigate with log level 2.
