	I have just TLS support on (see  doc/guides/openssl)  and
	then AUTH LOGIN on underneath it.  Both IE and NS can
	use that setup to do autenticated message submission
	inside encryption envelope.

	I haven't done/used the MSA mode myself, so I don't know.

	There is some generic problem in the kill method, if you
	restart new server instance (be it which ever component),
	too quickly, the new instance removes pointer to the old
	instance (or vice versa), and thus a sort of orphan is
	left behind.

	Study the   lib/killprev.c   and suggest a fix for it.
	(A shared segment might be one such solution!)
