Unstable SSL connection after updating to 1.7u6b21
After migrating from 1.7u4 to 1.7u6(b21), I am encountering problems with SSL connections hanging. The symptom is that a previously established SSL connection to a java server stops receiving incoming data. The client writes an http request on the socket, but the listener on the server side never appears to receive the request.
I was upgrading to try to get the fix for 2224826. The new problem is worse than the original since it appears to affect sockets in the middle of a conversation, not just at close.
