Re: the latest prerelease

The problem is with this loop in
int Curl_SSL_Close_All(struct SessionHandle *data)
  int i;
  for(i=0; i< data->set.ssl.numsessions; i++)
    /* the single-killer function handles empty table slots */

  /* free the cache data */

  return 0;

data->set.ssl.numsessions is preset to 5 so even if data->set.ssl.session
is not valid it invokes Kill_Single_Session five times with an invalid
pointer causing the crash.
I think we need to put a check there
