Hi Brian, what version of OpenSSL are you using?  I'm wondering it  
the latest greatest openssl fixed this?  (since the problem ceased  
after I upgraded to the brand new series)  0.9.8a I think it is.   
(hey, how convenient, it's the same version as ejabberd) Still, I've  
only been running for a day now.  I'll keep an eye out.

Is this dynamic unload a new thing?  I had never had this problem in  
the past until I upgraded.  I think I was running 0.9.1 . . . maybe  
0.7.5.  (i think .5, not in front of me at the moment)
