I tried this with both versions of nss currently out and do not get the 
hang on the ssl connection.  I get a report of 5 errors and then rebuild 
ends since errors are greater than 0.  I do not understand the 
significance of 5 errors out of 5000+tests.

My interpretation of the above two is not that the don't build, but they 
build with an error that cause other packages not to build.  Is it your 
intent that we use these patched packages to replace the defective ones 
in our repository and then build ekiga or python-nss.

Thanks for your info I have now reduced my unbuilt packages down to 10.  
I haven't used all your patches yet so I expect to reduce  them still
