That is not an OpenSSL version - that is an OS vendor specific version
based on OpenSSL 1.0.1e

There is insufficient information in the above to diagnose the problem.
We would need a build with full debugging symbols.

All of the above are vendor specific patches (probably based on original
OpenSSL commits). However I don't know from the name what dtls-ecc-ext
is referring to. You would need to address your specific question to
Is it possible that you can run the latest 1.0.1 version of standard
OpenSSL (i.e. OpenSSL 1.0.1l)? There have been some significant DTLS
related fixes that have been applied in recent versions.
