I think this explains why twittering-mode cannot create an auth key for twitter after username and password get entered. This happened in earlier versions of emacs 24.x and I gave up on twittering-mode for that reason.

Hi all,

Context: manually-compiled Emacs 24.5 on Debian Jessie x86_64.

For a while i'd been facing the problem that, when i opened an HTML email (erk) in mu4e, Emacs would freeze; my only recourse was to terminate the Emacs process.

Today i worked out that a call to `openssl` is the source of the problem: installing the `gnutls-bin` package and modifying the value of the variable `tls-program` to only call `gnutls-cli` fixed the issue.

Modifying `tls-program` to add the "-no_ssl3" switch to the `openssl` invocation had not helped.

Of course, OpenSSL's internals are apparently a wretched hive of scum, so i'm wondering if anyone else has faced this problem? Is this a known issue?


Alexis.
