Re: POST and SSL hangs

I'm seeing this behavior as well.  I recompiled the libwww libraries in 
debug mode so I could trace into them, and I'm finding that it "hangs" 
at line 401 in Library/src/SSL/HTSSL.c, in the HTSSL_read function.  I'm 
not sure if the problem lies with the wwwssl module, or if it actually 
lies with OpenSSL -- it hangs when it tries to do an SSL_read.

If there is more info that I could provide to try and help this out, let 
me know.  I could provide the output from the trace routines (I have 
HTSetTraceMessageMask set to "*").

This is really vital -- I absolutely have to be able to do a POST with 
SSL -- a GET will not work, and it has to be done via SSL.  Any help 
will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
