For ia64 http://python.org/dev/buildbot/all/ia64%20Ubuntu%20trunk%20trunk/builds/833/step-test/0

pybot at noisy:~$ openssl version
OpenSSL 0.9.8b 04 May 2006

I have access to some of the machines but not all of them.  All of
these run inside a chroot which might be causing a problem.  I
remember some issues with getting socket stuff to work right on them.
But that was over a year ago and I don't remember the details now.
:-( svn/google probably knows if you want to trawl through checkins.
I'm not sure that will help much though.

On this machines I was able to successfully make a key.  That's why
I'm thinking it might be some strange socket issue.

Yeah, I know this is difficult.  Hopefully someone with WIndows will
step up to help.  We can at least make the test more robust and verify
the files exist and are non-zero in size.  I will do that now.  At
least the it shouldn't cause the test to time out.
