After today's OpenSSL update I was a bit surprised when alpine stopped working and random characters were appearing in the dialogue when I tested IMAP manually with OpenSSL's s_client. Interestingly it affected only one of my machines.
Apparently there's a regression in the current OpenSSL 1.0.1d that corrupts the data
stream on CPUs with AES-NI, see http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp....sl.devel/22137
If you've got a CPU with AES-NI (i5, i7, ...) consider rebuilding the 1.0.1d package with the patch from http://git.openssl.org/gitweb/?p=ope...diff;h=32cc247
before upgrading. In my case the patch solved the problem.
