I don't have any idea what that pull request is about. I am not too well 
versed in SSL-fu.

I narrowed it down a little.

The previously mentioned issue only happens with a test certificate 
generated by erl_make_certs.erl.

A different report happens with a certificate generated by OpenSSL 
(again, setting versions to [sslv3]).

=ERROR REPORT==== 7-Feb-2014::10:55:57 ===
SSL: certify: tls_connection.erl:2286:Fatal error: decrypt error

=ERROR REPORT==== 7-Feb-2014::10:55:57 ===
SSL: certify: tls_connection.erl:2055:Fatal error: decrypt error
{error,{tls_alert,"decrypt error"}}

The client in all cases is always:

   ssl:connect("localhost", 44443, []).

I can provide a test case for either or both of them if you want.
