Ok a little more, this is running as a detached program and certificate.c is
trying to request a user action...

Request action with icon title: SSL Certificate Verification primary: Accept
certificate for local-bay.contacts.msn.com? secondary: The certificate for
local-bay.contacts.msn.com could not be validated.
The certificate claims to be from "localhost.localdomain" instead. This
could mean that you are not connecting to the service you believe you are.
The certificate is not trusted because no certificate that can verify it is
currently trusted.
The certificate has expired and should not be considered valid.  Check that
your computer's date and time are accurate.
