Also, if you're using Debian, this is bogus. There's a problem with Debian's OpenSSL 0.9.8a packages.

With the latest 5.1 Snap (5.1-200512141530) this works great.
I use debian, but a self-compiled openssl-0.9.8a and not the distribution package.

Is there a chance to get this fixed in the 4_4 branch too?

Do you use debian? or can you reproduce this problem with a recent php version (5.1 or 5.2, 4.x will not get fixed)?

5.x works, 4.4.x not.

this is a debian distribution, but openssl is build from the 
official sources, i do not use the openssl deb-package.

Please upgrade. PHP 4.x is only for security fixes.
