[erlang-questions] yaws + ajax + https -- bug with IE6?

Hi there!

There is well-known problem with MS IE6 AJAX calls over https 
connections -- like http://trac.lighttpd.net/trac/ticket/346

It's fixed on other http servers by placing specific ssl options for 
MSIE clients.

Is it possible to shutdown ssl connection unclean in yaws (and in ssl 
module in general?). Thanks in advance.

Fix for SSL problem I've asked before :

Upgrade from erlang version 11b1 to 11b3 fixed this issue.
The problem was in yaws, which have many ssl acceptor sockets, timeout 
on them every 2 seconds and respawn another acceptor -- thus leasing to 
continuous decreasing/increasing count of listening processes.
esock.c in 11b1 and previous versions on each accepting socket attach 
were changing status to PASSIVE_LISTENING and then to ACTIVE_LISTENING 
-- increasing probability that some client will connect in passive 
state. Newer version works quite more stable and does not switch to 
passive mode while new acceptor attaches to ssl socket -- thus this bug 
should be marked as fixed and resolved.
