You'd hope.  But when researching the error message this user got, I
found the same error message from a Thunderbird user, I think it was.
The problem is basically a somewhat invalid certificate being served up
by the server.  The recommended way to fix that is to fix the server.

But, yes, I hope we can do better.  If one cipher (or whatever this is
:-) fails, why not try the other ones automatically instead of failing
completely?  You'd imagine that would be doable...
