gnutls-verify-error issues

There seems to be something weird going on with the gnutls-verify-error
variable.  It is initially set to:

(("muchlearning\\.org"
      (:trustfiles))
     ("news\\.gmane\\.org" nil)
     (".*"
      (:trustfiles :hostname)))

i.e. it verifies all domains strictly except for a couple of domains
that need to be more lax.

However, after it's made a few connections, the value changes, and
eventually becomes unusable for some domains.  e.g. it may look like this:

(("muchlearning\\.org"
   (:trustfiles))
  ("news\\.gmane\\.org" nil
   (:trustfiles :hostname)
   (:trustfiles :hostname)
   . #2)
  (".*"
   (:trustfiles :hostname)
   . #1))

and it won't be able to connect to news.gmane.org any more.

I'm currently using emacs 24.4 from Debian (package version 24.4+1-5,
which is the current version from Debian stable).
