Pidgin cannot connect to using TLS secured XMPP

I am the admin of the XMPP server Since I changed the 
certificate of the server some days ago, it seems that Pidgin clients 
cannot connect to my server using TLS encryption anymore.
On the UI I always get "SSL handshake failed" when I try to connect. And 
in the Debug Window I get "nss: Handshake failed  (-12286)".

Can anybody on this list please help me finding the problem? I'd like to 
see Pidgin clients being able to connect to the server again.


BTW: Other clients can connect successfully to the server and do event 
accept the certificate without complaints.
