That helps me focus the debugging.  Thanks, Eli.

(I have adapted the library code so that it gets the SSL client context 
from a parameter rather than at unit invocation time.  This also hooks 
into some much older kludge that plugs a modified "ssl-tcp" unit with 
the "url" unit.  But my best guess now is that there is simply a problem 
with what values I am setting in the context.)
