This might be a philosophical difference, but:

  $ test/aborttest
  test/aborttest.c:15: OpenSSL internal error: Voluntary abort
  Abort trap

I don't believe its the library's place to shutdown an application.
Libraries don't make policy decisions for applications.

I think in this case, the library should refuse to process data and
always return a failure. Similar to latching a power-up self test
failure for the FIPS gear.

Crashing the application will make OpenSSL powered apps no better than
BIND, which constantly DoS'es itself. Cf.,
