It's hard to tell from the bug report; can you tell us if your Emacs is
compiled with the GnuTLS library? (the output of `configure' would
help, or tell us where you got the binary).

That build doesn't have GnuTLS support, so you're running an external
binary (`gnutls-cli' or something similar). I haven't seen the problems
you report on Mac OS X (tried with the emacsformacosx build), so it may
be something specific to your system. Can you see if any other users of
the emacsformacosx build can confirm the bug?
