Moreover, with almost exactly the same version of GnuTLS and the same
version of Emacs, I succeed to fetch the list of packages from
marmalade on my system, without any error messages.  The only

and (2) the trusted certificates stored on the system.  Maybe also the
network configuration, although I'm not sure how that could come into
