I encountered a very similar problem running a development version of Oneiric, openssh-client 1:5.8p1-7ubuntu1.

Michael, try using 'curl -I --socks5 127.0.0.1:1080 http://thesite'. I find that curl connects perfectly through the SOCKS SSH tunnel and that Firefox 7.0.1+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu1 fails with almost exactly the log messages you pasted.

Here is a successful connection I recorded using 'curl -I https://thewebhost --socks5 localhost:12345' and 'ssh -vvv -ND 12345 thesshhost':

Here is a failed connection, same https:// address, same ssh tunnel, using Firefox 7.0.1. Firefox is configured with all traffic proxied to 127.0.0.1 port 12345:
