I'm having a problem with ZServerSSL from M2Crypto 0.6 Snap 4.

>From IE it works great. From Netscape 4.7 and Netscape 6, Zope crashes

  File "/usr/local/mindy/", line 817, in ?
  File "/usr/local/Zope-2.3.0-src-2/ZServer/medusa/", line
146, in loop
    poll_fun (timeout, map)
  File "/usr/local/Zope-2.3.0-src-2/ZServer/medusa/", line
70, in poll
    try: r,w,e = (r,w,e, timeout)
select.error: (9, 'Bad file descriptor')
Zope/Zope 2.3.0 (source release, python 1.5.2, linux2) ZServerSSL/0.06

It happens mostly when going from an https to an http page.

I can download Snap 5 if you think it will help this, although I'm on
Zope 2.3.0. I'm on Redhat 7.0, it has OpenSSL 0.9.5a instead of 0.9.6.
Upgrading it looked to be quite a pain because of RPM dependencies.
Could that be the problem?
