OC Client keeps asking for password if using self-signed SSL


Expected behaviour

Client should silently sync

Actual behaviour

Client sync's but asks for known password every 1-2 minutes, the dialog for the specified account is shown and the password is already typed in, so I need to press "ok" every 1-2 minutes.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Use self-signed SSL certificate for the https connection
  2. Connect the client via https, not http
