Unfortunately, I don't have Ubuntu or Debian machines.  But I'd bet
it's a variation in the specific version of OpenSSL being used.  I
just tested on Fedora Core 7, though, and test_ssl runs fine there.
What version of OpenSSL is being used on the buildbots?  Can I log
into one of them and look at the configuration?

This must be the call to os.system in test_ssl.py:create_cert_files().
It's very UNIX-y.  Can any bi-platform folks suggest a good
alternative to

    os.system(
        "openssl req -batch -new -x509 -days 10 -nodes -config %s "
        "-keyout \"%s\" -out \"%s\" > /dev/null < /dev/null 2>&1" %
        (conffile, crtfile, crtfile))

that would be more Windows-friendly?
