What is difficult to test in ssl connections fail? I routinely test mine with
telnet-ssl or python scripts (though I remember something about python and IMAP
SSL not too long ago)...
Also, the silentness would IMHO be better fixed by adding a big fat NOT to the
init script (although anything more than a NOT will be controversial as
well...). Reminds me of something I should fix for my packages...
