Hi all !

If clean Client (b.e. Cromium w/o any certificate ) requested a connection  to 
a SSl server ( "Yaws" frontend in my case),  the ssl_connection  crashed with 

=CRASH REPORT==== 3-Jun-2011::00:04:10 ===
    initial call: ssl_connection:init/1
    pid: <0.127.0>
    registered_name: []
    exception exit: {function_clause,

The  SSL alerts with number 41 (no certificate) is  not defined in ssl_alert.hrl 
and not handled by any of the ssl_connection:handle_alert implementations.
Maybe this is a Bug?

V.B.R Sergey Shilov.
