environment: R14B04


the ssl session cache validation process (spawned every minute by the
ssl_manager process) will crash and log:

Error in process <0.1107.0> on node '' with exit value:

if #session.time_stamp is 'undefined' for an entry in the
ssl_otp_session_cache table.

such entries will exist (shortly) in the ssl_opt_session_cache table if
a handshake failed with 

 SSL: certify: ./ssl_connection.erl:1646:Fatal error: bad certificate
 SSL: certify: ./ssl_connection.erl:1646:Fatal error: unknown ca
and possibly others.

best regards
