There was indeed a problem: because of the way the SSL termination is
done here, the validation method used is stateless

I assumed that the account thumbprint was not supposed to expire, but
it seems that it does expire. Fetching the new thumbprint, updating
the configuration and running the LE client again, and the certificate
is renewed.

Thanks for the warning.
