Ok. So. Based on this reply:

http://www.mail-archive.com/libgadu-devel@lists.ziew.org/msg01018.html

=================
It was rather a conscious decision. Since libgadu is a
reverse-engineered implementation of a proprietary protocol, we have no
control over the certificates used for SSL connections. We don't know
which certificates will be accepted or rejected by the original client,
so there is no reliable way to verify their validity in libgadu. But
since you mentioned it, I guess we should at least add a note to the
documentation.
=================

So basically that's good enough for me. Please use CVE-2013-4488 for
this issue.
