I have just tried it. It takes two hits from a client to fill the cache of
its worker process. 

There are two problems with this:

- the other worker processes are not primed on restart, and therefore
clients that 
  require ocsp stapling wil print an error instead of rendering the page (my
FF does it). 

- the stapling is not verified...

Yes, done that as well. The ssl_trusted_certificate includes the
intermediate and the server's own. 

However, ...

So, nginx wants the root certificate too, which is non-sense. Can't nginx
get the root certificate by itself?
