Joe Orton is generally a person with knowledge and clues. I'd put my money on
his suggestion (= having the ACE string in the cert).

This is a great patch and I want to apply it. I only have one little nit about
it that we need to sort out first: you add an argument to the debug callback.
This will break older apps that use this! While that is of course an option, I
think we should try to think this through first.

Why does the ssl-data get passed in to the callback using the 'extra' argument
and not just using the regular data pointer?

Uh, and regarding your question about the lack of a Curl_debugf(), I think we
should add such a function as soon as we feel a need for it. It would simply
use a ... argument and build a buffer that it passes to the current
Curl_debug() function.
