Tomcat released version 8.0.32 which bundles OpenSSL 1.0.2e (see below)
The issue remains (with the change that now IE can not connect at all,
it complains about some TLS stuff, did not look into it).

Any hints how to tackle this problem are welcome.

Version details (from tomcat startup log):
Loaded APR based Apache Tomcat Native library 1.2.4 using APR version 1.5.1.
OpenSSL successfully initialized (OpenSSL 1.0.2e 3 Dec 2015)
