Hi Daniel
I recompiled libcurl again openssl instead of nss, which solves the
problem for me.
I just added my post details to the fedora buglist as an alternative to
recreate the problem.
The problem is thus either in curl's usage of nss or in nss itself.
I'm happy to continue with a recompiled curl and thus the situation is
resolve as far as I'm concerned.
The fact of the matter is that there is actually still a problem and I
just updated this post with the link to fedora in case somebody else
also runs into this situation.
