Yes, you are right, just one last message, in this thread...

I think this will give us some insight in the nature of the
problem.  Next will step will likely be a pull-request.

I continued testing with Richard's patch, but this time
I did this:

N=0; while strace -f -o test$N.trace make test TESTS=test_sslsigalgs V=1 
 >test$N.log; do N=$((N+1)); done; echo count=$N
make[1]: *** [_tests] Error 1
make: *** [tests] Fehler 2

This time something slightly different happened, a SIGPIPE here:
                  $indata = $self->process_packet(1, $indata);
                  $ctr = 0;

which happens because the client exited already.

So I have the trace output showing what is going on when the
test fails.
