Note that the patch changes the value of SSL_OP_ALL so if OpenSSL shared libraries are updated to include the patch existing applications wont set it: they'd all need to be recompiled. Possibly alternative is to reuse one of the existing *ancient* flags. Does anyone really care about compatibility with a bug in SSLeay 0.80 for example? Steve. -- Dr Stephen N. Henson.
