So, when I try to connect to the SSL SMTP socket for gmail, I get this
failure:

Erlang R14B (erts-5.8.1) [source] [64-bit] [smp:4:4] [rq:4]

This happens with the R14A release, with the latest github/dev AND the
latest github/pu branches on OSX. 

It doesn't happen on R13b02 on another machine, there it works as
expected. It should be pretty easy to reproduce without further
information.
