I found and corrected a newly introduced case in lib/ssluse.c that probably
did this.

Indeed. Your example site was perfect to reproduce this problem (once I tried
it on Linux, my Solaris box runs fine on it).

I've committed this fix:

It isn't really the perfect fix (as it kind of just loops until the read
successes instead of going back to select() for more data), and I haven't yet
made the same fix for writing, but it should fix the short-term problems...
