Yes--this does seem to fix it.  I modified my copy of 
src/login-common/ssl-proxy-openssl from the RC6 source files, made the 
change you noted, and it seems to have fixed my problem (crashing on 
startup if SSL was disabled).

Thanks so much for all of your hard work and this quick reply.  I'm 
running with this change in my RC6 now, and (I'm not a CVS user, nor am 
I very familiar with it) that this change will be rolled into RC7, then, 

Thanks again for your response--much appreciated.
