I looked a bit at the gio code this morning and it appears the problem with the site in question is that gtlsdatabase-gnutls.c:build_certificate_chain does not find a "anchor" and therefore passes NULL as the anchors to gnutls_x509_crt_list_verify() which always fails with " *output |= GNUTLS_CERT_SIGNER_NOT_FOUND | GNUTLS_CERT_INVALID;" in lib/x509/verify.c:_gnutls_verify_certificate2. The cli version of gnutls seems to simply pass the list of all trusted CAs to gnutls_x509_crt_list_verify() instead of trying to find the right trusted CA itself (which looks like a more sensible approach to me).
