No worries.

The bug only manifests itself when using TLS-- unfortunately, since I'm 
a paranoid type I require TLS on my private stuff, so getting it working 
is going to definitely be a challenge.  I'm afraid I'll have to 
deconstruct the port and go line by line through the source to figure 
out where it's making OpenSSL calls...
