[openssl-users] FIPS_mode_set(1) failing

This call fails on two platforms with:

fips.c(143): OpenSSL internal error, assertion failed: FATAL FIPS 

         (or line 139)

The openssl installs are:

OpenSSL 1.0.1e-fips 11 Feb 2013
OpenSSL 1.0.2g-fips 1 Mar 2016

Any hints?  Do I have to call a self test before entering FIPS mode?
