It's Ubuntu 10.04 LTS i686, using Open SSL 1.0.1a which was compiled
using just ./config followed by make, no additional options provided.

Connecting to that server using the basic openssl command line does hang
before failing as well. If I add -ssl3 or -tls1 to the command line it
works, if I add -ssl2 it fails immediately. It's only where no option is
given that the problem occurs. I get that this is a problem within the
OpenSSL that I have, I was just trying to find out if there is a way of
working around it.

If nothing else, I'll just go with using -3 for everything and hope I
don't end up trying to connect to something which only supports TLS
