[openssl-users] How do I uninitialize OpenSSL properly?

Thanks for the quick reply! I'm sorry, I didn't mean to sound impatient.
It's just that I read through the archives and so much has been
happening that I was afraid that my thread would be swamped away unnoticed.

My problem is most likely an on process exit thing, because I do the
certificate stuff only once, no matter how long the application is
running. Therefore it's probably not a big problem, but memory leaks
look bad, because they imply that I am using OpenSSL improperly.

Anyway, thanks for the advice on apps_startup and apps_shutdown. I will
try them out as soon as I can. Those defines do look like salvation from
all the problems I had finding the right methods to
initialize/uninitialize OpenSSL properly.

Have a happy rest of Sunday!
