In the last days I noticed that also some jabber client libraries where crashing
jabber.linuxlovers.at, and i found a similar problem here http://ejabberd.jabber.ru/node/1126 with
the note "When I emerge openssl without zlib use flag, this bug vanishes." from zlobnyme. So I
installed today openssl without zlib support, and the S2S TLS and C2S TLS connections are again in a
sane state (but, without zlib compression).
For my small jabber server (about 600 users registered, 100-200 online simultaniously) this is a
not-so-bad-solution, but i still hope that one of the dev's could look a bit further into this
problem - silently crashing server daemons is something what shouldn't be in these days ;-)

If someone needs more debugging information, just ask,
best wishes
