[gnutls-devel] no way to detect gnutls_global_init() failure in 3.3

If gnutls_global_init() has been called before, it always returns 0,
even if it failed the first time. Since it now gets called from a
constructor, this means it will always return 0 when called from
application code, even if it failed when called from the constructor.

Probably it should save the original return value for future calls?
