I've done some more testing.  I installed pgadmin3-1.0.1 and 
pgadmin3-1.1.0-cvs20031030 on a Mandrake 9.2 box.  The Mandrake 9.2 box 
has all updates applied and is running openssl-0.9.7b-4.1.92mdk.  When I 
connect from this machine to my SSL enabled PostgreSQL machine pgadmin3 
crashes(both versions) when I try to execute a query.  I can use either 
version to connect to my nonSSL PostgreSQL server and I can execute a 
query.  So here is a summary of my current results.

Server: PostgreSQL 7.3.4 compiled with option --with-openssl.  Openssl 
version 0.9.7c.
1. RedHat9 client: Pgadmin3 crashes when executing a query while connected 
to the SSL enabled PostgreSQL server.  Pgadmin3 executes query against a 
nonSSL PostgreSQL server and against the SSL enabled server when ssl = 
false is set in postgresql.conf. Client has openssl-0.9.7a installed.
2. Mandrake 9.2 client: Same results as with RedHat9 client. Client has 
openssl-0.9.7b-4.1.92mdk installed.
3. Slackware 9.1: All queries on all servers work. Client has 
openssl-0.9.7b installed.

Actually, I can't believe that only 0.9.7b will work, but not 0.9.7a or 
0.9.7c, so I'd be glad if you could confirm this.

When mentioning libraries, I was talking about compilation options for 
multithread support and possible linkage against mt enabled libraries. 
Possibly, there are platforms where things are not compiled/linked 
correctly, but nobody noticed because ssl connections are rarely used 
(at least  for admins contacting a local server)
