You see the same sort of thing with an OpenSSL-using client (openssl, socat, etc.).

I am a little confused, because Iceweasel trusts it just fine, and I _thought_ that Debian had hacked up iceweasel / its libnss3 to use the system certificate store -- also because I thought Debian regularly syncs ca-certificates with the Mozilla list of trusted certs (and then makes some capricious changes on their own like including CACert, but).
