Well, wireshark shows the entire transaction in 24 packets.  One of  
them says "Client Hello[Malformed Packet].  Googling leaves me unclear  
if this  might be a wireshark bug (shedding no light on my OFX issue)  
or if there really is something going on such as some sort of SSL level  
mismatch, perhaps due to a recent change at BOA.  (I don't think I've  
updated any SSL or such software lately, but I'll have to dig.)
