FWIW, strace-ing the client and the server indicates that they're both
blocking on read()ing from the socket.  Of course, since it's all
encrypted, I have no idea what they're waiting for...

On a related note, anyone know how to get OpenSSL (specifically via
M2Crypto) to use a NULL cipher?  Being able to dump the traffic with
Ethereal or something would be damn spiffy.
