Since you are building Squid is there any particular reason why you are
not building the currently supported 3.2 sources which as you noticed
are fixed?

AFAIK the fix in Squid was just the change to remove our default
"SSL_OP_ALL" which breaks the OpenSSL protection hack. Possiby combined
with the default of using SSLv3 instead of SSLv2. Renegotiation is one
of the options enabled by "ALL". Note that your config can contain the
ssloption=ALL and cause the renegotiate to happen again. Also notice
that for any of this to work you need to be building against a fixed
version of OpenSSL.

Squid contains nothing explicitly about client negotiation. It is all
passed to OpenSSL. The closest that is reached is defaulting to
"SSL_OP_ALL" (fixed by the above patch), the rest is squid.conf options
set by the administrator and passed straight to OpenSSL.

Reads fine to me :-)
