Went away with some debug.  Might suggest an -O3 problem.

Perhaps they're related.  The security library was missing some
symbols, although this was a bit tricky to find out - I had
to dlopen it from a test problem.   With Firefox it was
shown as "loaded" by SOManager, so perhaps there was
some inconsistent state that upset some later on.

The upshot is that for the moment, it seems to be working.  I
logged onto my banking site and no more security complaints
(just it moaning about a script running too slow with debug on)

Anyway, I'll update the patches in due course.  It may yet
be helpful for you, or others to pursue this also.
