Agree and yes, that would definitely be much more helpful than the results
I had posted.

Funny you should say that, I was originally going to answer that 'yes' i
did - as I've compiled it with OpenSSL, WolfSSL, and mbedTLS (my preferred
choice) which I did have the issue pretty consistently (to varying
degrees), however rolling back the mbedTLS version to 2.16.8 (from
2.16.11) did end up getting me the results I was getting before. It does
appear I have more testing to do on my end to pinpoint the exact issue, but
I do appreciate the feedback and help on all accounts.
