I haven't done the appropriate work to confirm that the particular  
change I mentioned is actually what causes the problem, but I am  
suspicious of it.

It's very possible.

If you do 'openssl s_client -connect server:port -tls1' you can see  
if you generate the same error message  
(routines:SSL3_READ_BYTES:sslv3 alert bad record mac:s3_pkt.c: 
1057:SSL alert number 20) that I see connecting to MacPorts  
subversion (and on Mac OS X, you can use the apple-provided openssl  
to test as well).

You may have to test a few times to get the error, since it doesn't  
seem 100% reproducible.
