Hi Yutaka, I have applied http.c patch (see below) but problem (multiple
prompts for client certificate) remains.

Change of behaviour following installation of patch:

1. The problem is less severe (seems like fewer prompts - but I have not
counted and compared - I will test properly later)

2. Browser does not crash (even though you said you could not fix that

I have confirmed that stunnel does not have same problem (clean install
of stunnel-3.14 and openssl-o.9.6a on form tarball on my delegate/sslway
server - using same certificates as delegate/sslway)

I have not had time to investigate your other suggestions further (I
have been out of town for last week) but will get back to you with more
detail in next few days.

With thanks,
