Stephen, what result do you expect from this ?
Does the latest 0.9.8-stable already implement safe renegociation ? But 
I'd need a version of Firefox that implement it for testing (I'll try to 
get that from Nelson).

If renegociation is simply disabled, this case will simply fail as expected.
It's not a case of mod_ssl starting renegotiation where *none* is required.
Some comments imply that one also happens sometimes but I don't know if 
it's true as I don't know how precisely to reproduce it.
But I won't exclude it given how easy it is to fall into the problem of 
mod_ssl requiring more renegotiations than really needed.
