Hi James,
SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG 	-12263 	"SSL received a record that
exceeded the maximum permissible length."
This generally indicates that the remote peer system has a flawed
implementation of SSL, and is violating the SSL specification.

Can you retry this with a couch based off R15B01
as there've been considerable improvements in OTP's SSL implementation


- what configuration you are using (verifying intermediates etc)
- does this error occur in the browser, via curl, or something else?
- can you re-test with openssl s_client directly (to avoid the
browser), with debug mode enabled?
- what is shown in the couch.log error file at the same time?
- does the issue recur for you using the sample certs from mochiweb ?
