You're right. It does provide that feedback. My apologies. :)

I've just been doing a bunch of digging in the TLS code under `void
loadstatuschange`. I was prompted because it listed my own domain as
untrusted. It turns out, if the website is cached and you visit a page
at https, the page will be marked untrusted. This is because `msg` will
have no certificate attached. I don't know if this behaviour is
intentional. You can test this with:

Load the page, then close surf and open the page again. The first time
you visit it will be trusted, the second it will be untrusted. It will
load regardless of your `strictssl` setting. If it is untrusted the
first time, clear your cache in `~/.surf/cache/` then repeat the
experiment you should see it.
