This patch (against trunk as of 24NOV2008) corrects completely broken
behavior in SSL sockets.

Please can you elaborate on what is "completely broken" before we fix it?

A short code snippet illustrating defective behaviour would be enough.

The socket code for ssl was creating a new
BufferedInputStream/BufferedOutputStream for each read or write.
If, for instance, you read one byte, it would actually read up to the
buffer size and return you the one byte, while throwing away the buffer
containing anything else that had been read. So any program that read
from an SSL socket would fail.

Yes, you're exactly right.

I will apply your patch very soon.

Thanks for submitting the bug report.
