A server compiled with yassl on windows will crash when one of the SSL related functions are used. This problem only appears in 5.1, works fine in 5.0

ssl                            [ fail ]

Errors are (from C:/cygwin/home/mysqldev/pb/mysql-5.1-new/push-andrey@lmy004.-20060317122145.info/mysql-5.1.8-beta-standard/mysql-test/var-n_stm-5/log/mysqltest-time) :
mysqltest: At line 9: query 'SHOW STATUS LIKE 'Ssl_cipher'' failed: 2013: Lost connection to MySQL server during query
(the last lines may be the most important ones)

How to repeat:
Compile on windows and run ./mysql-test-run.pl -do-test=ssl

I don't like truncating a the SSL list silently, so I suggest adding a DBUG notice about an incomplete list when the buffer is filled before the SSL-info list is exhausted.

I don't especially want to restructure the code so that we can resize the buffer to accommodate all the data, but I don't have a suggestion about how to represent the data to the user that some information isn't shown.

Pushed a fix to 5.1.8 that protects against buffer overrun in 'show_ssl_get_cipher_list' that caused the server to crash when a SHOW STATUS was called on a server linked with yaSSL.
