After reading some more python bugs, eg http://bugs.python.org/issue3890
I see that in blocking ssl reads, sometimes incomplete reads can be
returned. So if you find that your patch fixes the hang without causing
other trouble, I think it should go in anyway. A fix for the specific
hang has been committed to p2.6 in March 2010 though.

So +1 for you patch based on that.
