In 3.x, SSL sockets are created by dup()ing the original socket and then closing it. No attempt is made to conserve the socket's characteristics, such as the timeout and probably other flags.

I understand that it may be too late to change the design decision of using dup() and closing the original, but perhaps we should make a best effort to retain the original socket's characteristics. Or perhaps this limitation should be clearly documented (since especially 2.x works differently).
