I have done many a search on the problem. I have recompiled openssl-0.9.7d 
a few times and still get the error. The crash report from kopete is

Using host libthread_db library "/lib/tls/libthread_db.so.1".
[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
[New Thread -1246891872 (LWP 21987)]
[KCrash handler]
#7  0xb4166063 in SSL_read () from /usr/local/ssl/lib/libssl.so.0.9.7
#8  0xb75e2a87 in KOpenSSLProxy::SSL_read ()
   from /usr/local/kde/lib/libkio.so.4
#9  0xbfffdf10 in ?? ()

In my /lib dir I have 
libcrypto.so.4 -> /lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.7 
libssl.so.4 -> /lib/libssl.so.0.9.7 both are also in /usr/local/ssl/lib
Also  libcrypto.so.2 -> /lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.6b and 
libssl.so.2 -> /lib/libssl.so.0.9.6b and 

Also when running konqueror when going ot a secure site I get warnings 
about OpenSSL_add_algo... symbols not found

Obvioulsy I have done something to my system as like I said, kde 3.2.2 and 
upwards has been fine from source.

I read the bug database also. It doesn't seem to help me though.
