    Default OpenSUSE 13.1 upgrade, Evolution gmail address book broken

    I recently upgraded from OpenSUSE 12.4 to 13.1 via switching repositories and doing an upgrade.

    Evolution kept all the account data except it can no longer use my gmail.com address book (contact list) since the upgrade. It asks for my gmail password, then gives this error:

    Code:
    This address book cannot be opened.  This either means that an incorrect URI was entered, or the server is unreachable.
    
    Detailed error message: Unable to connect to '{username}@gmail.com': Cannot connect to the service's server.
    I've been fighting with this for days: removed the address book & re-added it, uninstalled Evolution, rebooted, reinstalled Evolution, changed my gmail password; all to no effect. Also tried renaming (wiping) the .config/evolution/sources and .config/evolution/addressbook folders.

    Am I missing some simple here, like a firewall setting?

    Huh? 12.4 does not exist.

    There is 11.4 and 12.3.

    I'm not familiar with that feature, but first thing would be to check
    that you can browse to gmail.com.

    About the firewall, it has a log (/var/log/firewall), so you can verify
    if it intercepts something.

    More info, seems there is an SSL handshake problem from any process on my machine talking to gmail.com. Trying to connect with Gnome Contacts online account to a gmail account gives this:

    Unable to load page

    Problem occurred while loading the URL https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2...h%2Fgoogletalk


    SSL handshake failed

    Please post another URL, that one wants me to give a password.

    If what you are attempting to do is paste here the error you get, please
    do so inside a code tag block.

    When pasting here computer commands and such, please use a CODE BLOCK,
    so that the forum software doesn't do silly things like converting URLS
    to tiny urls or otherwise hide or alter the commands you entered. You
    get them by clicking on the '#' button in the forum editor.
