I am not really a user of gnutls; just a user of user (viz a user of emacs)
The emacs-dev (Eli Zaretskii) could not reproduce the bug I reported
which pointed to gnutls so he suggested I submit this to you.

The bug which I submitted there (emacs bug no. 21145 ) is reproduced here:

Start emacs with -Q
Run (package-initialize)
Run (add-to-list 'package-archives
             '("marmalade" . "https://marmalade-repo.org/packages/") t)
Run M-x package-list-packages

Get error
gnutls.c: [0] (Emacs) fatal error: The TLS connection was non-properly

Some info from ldconfig -v|grep libgnutls

    libgnutls-deb0.so.28 -> libgnutls-deb0.so.28.41.0
/sbin/ldconfig.real: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.21.so is the dynamic
linker, ignoring

    libgnutls-openssl.so.27 -> libgnutls-openssl.so.27.0.2
    libgnutls-deb0.so.28 -> libgnutls-deb0.so.28.41.0

Above is ubuntu 15.4 with emacs 24.4.1
With ubuntu 14.10 with emacs 24.3.1 error (warning) is
gnutls.c: [1] Note that the security level of the Diffie-Hellman key exchange
has been lowered to 256 bits and this may allow decryption of the session data
