This is a known problem with GnuTLS support, it was solved in the
Emacs repository last November (bzr revision 114956, if someone wants
the diffs), and surely should be solved in the upcoming Emacs 24.4.
See http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=15648 for more
details (ignore the parallel discussion that's going there about
cygwin-mount, it is a separate issue).
