I don't know if this is still true and I don't know if it ever was an OpenSSL
issue filed. Feel free to dig into the issue and let us know what you find! I
suspect it hasn't been scrutinized in detail by very many people...

The source of that information is this:
http://curl.haxx.se/mail/lib-2004-05/0139.html and it was added to the
documentation in git commit 23a43c6e.
