Ah, so indeed perhaps this will reveal a key difference between my
test client and the rest of the live clients (still gathering info on
them to see if they continue to fail). The rest of the clients don't
have the hostname issue, I believe, so perhaps they will indeed be
improved by the flag.

But, any idea why it works one minute, then doesn't the next, when
nobody touches anything? Or, a good way to dig deeper? Perhaps I need
a very verbose dump of the whole SSL handshake, I guess, to find out
why it works fine one minute then doesn't the next, but I didn't find
an option (particularly on the "update" subcommand).

Thanks,
Dan
