Interesting, thanks for trying that out.  I'm not sure what else neon 
could do to make this work correctly so I think further diagnosis based 
on packet traces will be needed.  I can try to work on that sometime in 
the coming week, with luck.

It might be useful to modify gnutls-cli to call gnutls_rehandshake() in 
the same fashion as my patch to neon, to get some debugging traces from 
GnuTLS, if you wanted to try that.

Regards, Joe
