You're right I tried with GnuTLS against my localhost that has a
"regular" default_server and it works:

Checking whether the server understands TLS closure alerts... partially
Checking whether the server supports session resumption... yes
Also in this server there's no setting in the config for
ssl_session_cache. Its using the default value: none.

This means that the problem resides in the way the test is performed?
Can you elaborate a little bit more? 

Thank you,
