Solution for GnuTLS internal error in cadaver

Problem: the Linux WebDav client cadaver (Debian 0.23.3-1 binary package or compiled from source) fails the handshake abruptly instead of asking for the client certificate configured with set client-cert. When compiled from source, both GnuTLS and OpenSSL versions fail, although with slightly different error meesages. It used to work. The following error message is displayed by the GnuTLS version:

Could not open collection:
SSL handshake failed, client certificate was requested: SSL error: GnuTLS internal error.

Solution: the issue seems to be with libneon 0.27 and/or GnuTLS library. Downgrade to cadaver 0.22.5, which uses libneon 0.26, to make it work again.

I am running into this issue on Fedora 13 but I am not sure of the best/easiest/quickest way to downgrade.

Here is what I get when I run cadaver --version:

cadaver 0.23.3
neon 0.29.3: Library build, IPv6, Expat 2.0.1, zlib 1.2.3, GNU TLS 2.8.5.
readline 6.1

Well, the first thing I'd try is downloading cadaver 0.22.5 and compiling from source.

More specifically, I configured it like so:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/cadaver-0.22.5 --with-ssl=gnutls --with-neon=/usr

(with /usr/lib/ being there on my system)
