As repeated several times, there are apparently micro SSL implementations
out there in the wild, e.g. cell phone browsers, who choose to renegotiate
and - seeing an alert that it is not supported, hum merrily along.

So the 'shut down the connection' flavor of halting server initiated
renegotiation breaks such clients, while the openssl 0.9.8m graceful
handling supports such renegotiation requests with a polite refusal.
