Actually, I've reproduced the problem with 0.9.6m as well.

I've been working with one of the OpenSSL guys (Bodo Moeller) to track 
down what's going on. We've identified 3 issues in 0.9.6/0.9.7, of which 
one appears to be fixed in 0.9.8. It looks like we have a solution for 
one of the two remaining issues already, so it's likely that the overall 
problems in OpenSSL will be fixed in an upcoming release. When the fixes 
in OpenSSL become available, I will revert the mutex I added in HEAD
