problem with http SSL and TLS

problem with http SSL and TLS

(OP)
Recently many sites disabled SSLv3 support due to a security vulnerability.

Fine, no problem. I changed my script to use this line:
http::register https 443 [list ::tls::socket -tls1 1 -ssl2 0 -ssl3 0] 

Which the documents seem to indicate disables sslv3. This works for hours/days, then eventually I start getting errors:

SSL channel "sock10": error: sslv3 alert handshake failure
error: error reading "sock10": software caused connection abort 

I restart the script and it works again for a few hours/days, then more errors.

Is this a bug? Am I doing something wrong? Or is there a better way to disable SSLv3?


thanks
