First, what version of OpenSSL is this? We try to set SSL_OP_NO_TICKET, which I believe was
added in OpenSSL 0.9.9. Maybe httpd uses a different technique to disable session tickets.

Can you turn on "ssl" debug logging? With ssl_ticket_enabled=0 you should see a message like
"ssl session ticket is disabled" ...

TLS session tickets (RFC 5077), default value is "On" (unchanged behavior). Session ticket
creation uses a random key created during web server startup and recreated during restarts.
No other key recreation mechanism is available currently. Therefore using session tickets
without restarting the web server with an appropriate frequency (e.g. daily) compromises perfect
forward secrecy. [Rainer Jung]
