[New-bugs-announce] [issue14543] Upgrade OpenSSL on Windows to 0.9.8u

New submission from Dino Viehland <dinov at microsoft.com>:

OpenSSL has had many fixes since the 0.9.8l version, and in particular there is one issue which prevents it from connecting with SSL with a client certificate: the end result is the SSL connection hangs or times out.

Updating the OpenSSL version will fix this and enable better compatibility across platforms.

I've attached my repro but if you want to try it you'll need a different server + private key pair to authenticate with.  I've also confirmed re-building Python with 0.9.8m fixes the problem and Python currently ships with 0.9.8l.
