It seems that for a unpatched version the connection is re-used fine in the
test (which means the connection is re-used when the connection is not in
ssl_connection_complete yet), while the patched version refuses to reuse that
connection then.

You can see this by setting a break-point in ConnectionExists and investigate
the structs when it gets called the second time.
