Ubuntu Hardy LTS (8.04) and Nginx and Openssl

I am having problems to use Nginx with the openssl version Ubuntu 8.04 server shipped.
See: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nginx/+bug/395637
I use the Nginx backported version: nginx_0.6.34-2ubuntu1~intrepid1_i386.deb (the 0.5.3 default version is too old on Ubuntu therfor I use the backports for nginx).

When running a SSL virtual host I get:
SSL_CTX_set_tlsext_servername_callback() failed (SSL:)

As stated before, it is a bug in the OpenSSL version of Ubuntu Hardy..my question is does anyone know how I can fix this and not using the OpenSSL sources?
I want to use the debian/ubuntu repositories so I can easyily update and upgrade my system..when I have to compile from source (esp openssl!) I have to keep it up to date by compiling it and following the mailinglist and take care of the dependency hell :(
That is why I want to try to find a Ubuntu repository solution.
Does anyone know how I can fix the Openssl error with Nginx , Ubuntu and Openssl?

Thanks for any help or tips.

Kind regards,
