Shouldn't the PROTOCOL_ERROR be a reneg attempt from a peer after receiving that peer's preface, rather than an attempt received after sending your own?  Otherwise, the server's attempt to fetch the cert races (and almost certainly loses) with the client's own preface, aborting the connection.

Quite right, I think that I need to make this conditional on "after it
has received a preface".  Anything else makes little sense.
