Problem was use of local variables in gnutls callback, which were still used after end of callback by gnutls. And so they were destroyed when exiting callback, and gnutls uses bad pointer.

Fix: move these 2 variables (tls_cert and tls_cert_key) into server structure, so that they are still available for gnutls even after end of callback.

Version will be released soon with this fix + bug #28741 (another bug in gnutls callback).

WeeChat crashes (in gnutls lib) when connecting to irc server with ssl and if ssl_cert is set.

There is crash only if WeeChat is compiled with debug (cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug). No crash if WeeChat is compiled without debug, for example for release (cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release).
