Really?  How can you tell it's self-signed?  Back when I had a problem
with GnuTLS not picking up root certificates, NSM said the same thing:

  Certificate information
  Issued by:          Google Internet Authority G2
  Issued to:          Google Inc
  Hostname:           accounts.google.com
  Public key:         RSA, signature: RSA-SHA1
  Protocol:           TLS1.2, key: ECDHE-RSA, cipher: AES-128-GCM, mac: AEAD
  Security level:     Medium
  Valid:              From 2014-12-03 to 2015-03-03


  The TLS connection to accounts.google.com:443 is insecure for the
  following reasons:

  certificate signer was not found (self-signed)
  certificate could not be verified

How this one is different, and are you sure Dmitry shouldn't check his
certificate bundle?

Also, what about this bit:

   Valid:              From 2011-12-04 to 2014-12-03
                                          ^^^^^^^^^^
