[racket] ssl-listener not an evt?

I'm embarking on an SSL server, using a 'sync' loop to handle
my ports.

However, 'sync' requires evt?... as its arguments, and my SSL listener
ports do not conform to the evt? contract.

See the snippet below:
Welcome to Racket v5.0.2.
 > (require openssl)
 > ssl-available?
 > (define s (ssl-listen 12355))
 > (ssl-listener? s)
 > (evt? s)
 > (sync s)
sync: expects argument of type <evt>; given #<ssl-listener>

  === context ===

[Racket is build from (UNIX) source on Linux and Solaris, with minimal
  configure flags (i.e. only --prefix)]

The documentation says that an ssl-listener? can be used with sync.

Am I missing something?
Is this a bug?
Is there any way to coerce racket into accepting an ssl-listener? to be
and evt? ?
Can you ever put too many question marks in one email?
