Problems with SSL & user authentification

Thank you for providing the SSL package worldwide.

I'm successfully using both GET&POST over SSL to servers which does not require
user authentification. But when using authentification the wwwssl utility hangs
after asking login&passwd. (or pends until timeout)

It seems that the first GET finishes succesfully but the next fails. (receives
no reply from the server) 

When using POST the library seg faults after sending the second request.

I'm using RedHat 6.1 and non-blocking mode of libwww. And exactly the same
problems occur with my own programs and this example source (wwwssl). The lib
source used is checked out 11.7.2000.

I also tried these under AIX 4.3 but there I get "Fatal Error: SSLWRITE
operation failed (Error 0)" after first GET/POST request.

Here's a part of debug spam wwwssl generates after login.

After this it simply timeouts. If you need more debug just ask.
