Intermittent SSL Handshake Errors

The errors went away, and now the only errors I see in our logs relating to
SSL are handshake timeouts when I turn debug logs on.

Now that I think about it, though, isn't this to be expected? The errors
immediately went away as soon as I downgraded far enough back to a version
of OpenSSL that didn't support TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV. That doesn't address why
the connections are getting reset and clients are downgrading in the first
place, though.
