On BitlBee 3.2.2+20141207+devel+1070-2 API version 030202, this happens:

11:31 <@root> New request: Request: SSL Certificate Verification
11:31 <@root>
11:31 <@root> Accept certificate for [server name removed]?
11:31 <@root>
11:31 <@root> The certificate for [server name removed] could not be
11:31 <@root>
11:31 <@root> The certificate is not trusted because no certificate that can
              verify it is currently trusted.
11:31 <@root> You can use the yes/no commands to accept/reject this request.

11:34 <@root> Welcome to the BitlBee gateway!

That is, if you answer yes to a certificate verification question after the connection has timed out, Bitlbee gets confused and resets to its initial state, after which you have to identify all over again. I don't know if this happens in ordinary (non-libpurple) Bitlbee as I haven't got any SSL errors there.
