It happens w/out valgrind too...but it seems then it crashes down in
libcrypto.  Basically, I guess it is just a bad idea to over-write
shared libraries and/or apps that use them while the app is running!

We can't seem to reproduce the crash any other way, and valgrind
runs are otherwise pretty clean, so I think all is well.
