I've made a step forward - I think. I started Pidgin this evening and it
reported that it couldn't connect to my MSN account because there was no SSL
support.  That jogged my memory, and I remember a short while ago messing
about with digital signatures and so on, which I think involved installing
something SSL-y. I've reinstalled all the OpenSSL stuff (no change), but I'm
at a loss how to fix this. What are the default SSL libraries that Ubuntu
7.10 uses?
