Yes, my profile folder is in the program`s folder for portability. I
use configdir option in sylpheed.ini and command line option
--configdir on different machines, problem still occurs. And % APPDATA %
\Sylpheed contains nothing but trust.crt when all is working good. 

IMHO the one and easy way to reproduce the problem is to make sylpheed
account with random login and password and mail.privatdemail.net:995 as
pop3 server in WinXP with configdir somewhere outside  % APPDATA %
\Sylpheed. You don`t need to register there or download mail, just
connect to server and grab cert and watch what happened after program`s
