I have seen this reported on HP-UX and have now been able to reproduce
it.  I suspected it to be a problem with either OpenSSL or the compiler,
and if you are able to reproduce it on another platform with another
compiler then it makes OpenSSL much more likely as the culprit.

I'll update the OpenSSL bug report.

usually comes from bad judgement.
