Bug Description

After installing today's bionic OpenSSL update (1.1.0g-2ubuntu4.3 -> 1.1.1-1ubuntu2.1~18.04.1 and associated libraries) SSL is broken in lighttpd 1.4.45-1ubuntu3. The logs are full of messages of the form:

2019-06-11 12:02:20: (connections-glue.c.126) SSL: renegotiation initiated by client, killing connection

Perhaps problem with TLS v1.3 negotiation? (And the version of lighttpd is too old to have the ssl.openssl.ssl-conf-cmd directive to try to disable it.)

A Debian bug suggests that lighttpd < 1.4.51 is broken by libssl 1.1

Simply rebuilding the source deb against the new libraries isn't enough to make it work.

To eliminate further downtime, I built/installed lighttpd 1.4.54 which resolved the problem.
