It is the connection that crashes, i.e. is not properly shut down with
the SSL protocol. 0.9.6g does that.

0.9.6c-2.woody.1 behaves like 0.9.6e in this by terminating the
connection hard instead of sending an error message.

For libssl09, I found no packages in sarge that depend on it.

And curl-ssl's Description in sarge says:
Description: Pseudopackage for migration from Debian 2.2 (potato).

I checked woody, same situation.

So unless you are running potato, you can remove both packages.
