[pkg-lighttpd] Bug#609124: Recent openssl upgrade breaks lighttpd (won't start)

Package: lighttpd
Version: 1.4.19-5+lenny1
Severity: important

The recent upgrade of openssl (to 0.9.8g-15+lenny11, see DSA-2141-1)
breaks lighttpd (most likely only if SSL support is enabled).

When trying to start lighttpd using /etc/init.d/lighttpd, the
following error occurrs:

  2011-01-06 14:27:34: (network.c.336) SSL: error:00000000:lib(0):func(0):reason(0)

This is apparently caused by lighttpd bug #2157 (see
http://redmine.lighttpd.net/issues/2157), which has been fixed in
lighttpd 1.4.27 (upstream release).
A bug report similar to this one is Debian bug #572031 -- it also links
to the same lighttpd bug. I am not sure why this error happens again (looks
like it _should_ have been fixed in Debian), but perhaps it's caused by the
openssl upgrade this time (well, obviously!). The lighttpd bug report says:

  The r2716 [SVN revision] is also needed when the latest OpenSSL version 0.9.8m is used.

Now Lenny is using openssl 0.9.8g, but perhaps the above note also applies
to that version...
