E.g. some recent CVSNT versions like CVSNT had have a SSERVER
problem with elder CVSNT versions.

Since the described error message comes from the OpenSSL library, I recommend also to
if CVSNT is using the OpenSSL DLL, which comes with CVSNT, or if you have on your
a different OpenSSL DLL in your PATH, which is found earlier.
