Ooh, here ERR is #f, instead of being an error value.  That’s presumably
because gnutls_handshake returned an error value that the GnuTLS
bindings don’t know about (see comment in ‘guile/src/errors.c’.)

Commit 1c59226bb239aa563d02b6ea8ed285de006e3b31 updates the list of
error codes known to the Guile bindings, which solves the problem.

The proper solution would be to automatically extract the list of error
codes from, but I felt too busy today.  :-)
