According to Google , the NSS error -8018 means NSS failed to load
your certificate from the indicated file. Since we know NSS now sees
the correct certpath, the rest is to deal with this -8018 error.
According to Google , the error -8018 means "unknown PKCS#11 error",
and Google suggests  to
1) Check the permissions on files under that directory (and on that
2) Enumerate the certs in that directory using
certutil -d /home/myusername/.ssl -L
So I'd try to carry out those steps using the account you're using to
run Git. (Note that the message "Initializing NSS with certpath" might
mean that the indicated pathname *will* be used by NSS when it will try
to access anything under it, not that NSS already checked everything is
okay with that path; so I'd say it's quite sensible that you only get
an error whey NSS actually tries to read from the cert storage.)
