There are two issues here:

1. The request should work if everything is correctly configured. It
could have something to do with the certs being used. Processing X.509v3
cert extensions during path validation is a weird task. I could reveal
this data to a single developer examining this but not to the ITS.

2. It looks suspicious when a connection attempt works which failed before.
