[bug-mailutils] pop3d sanity check

I was hoping for a sanity check to see what I'm doing wrong.
I'm running Ubuntu Server LTS 8.04, with mailutils-pop3d.  Using
gnutls, I did the following for making certificates:

# certtool --generate-privkey --outfile ca-key.pem
# certtool --generate-self-signed --load-privkey ca-key.pem \
             --outfile ca-cert.pem

I ran the following command to start pop3d:

/usr/sbin/pop3d -d -p 995 --tls-required --ssl-cert=/etc/ca-cert.pem \

On fencepost, I then run fetchmail with the following rc entry:

poll mail.deevans.net with proto POP3 user foo there with password "foobar" is 
foo here ssl mda "/usr/sbin/sendmail -oem %T"

I get this error:

1178:error:140770FC:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:unknown 
fetchmail: SSL connection failed.
fetchmail: socket error while fetching from address@hidden
fetchmail: Query status=2 (SOCKET)

pop3d works fine unencrypted under port 110 (run as pop3d -d).  (Firewall
settings have been verified.)

Can someone tell me what I'm missing?
