GNU Anubis works as a normal user without any special privileges
(after successful authorization), so the ssl-key specified in
`/etc/anubisrc' must be world-readable. The ssl-key specified
in a user configuration file (~/.anubisrc) *must* be 0600.

This is a bug in the alpha release. Thanks for noticing!
Right now just ignore this warning. It will be fixed soon.
