The function 'SSL_get_cipher_list' in yaSSL returns all avalible ciphers in one call to the function. This is not compatibel with the openSSL implementation that only one cipher is returned for each call, and eventually NULL when there is no cipher with the given pritority.

How to repeat:
Function is used in 'show_ssl_get_cipher_list'.

static int show_ssl_get_cipher_list(THD *thd, SHOW_VAR *var, char *buff)
  var->type= SHOW_CHAR;
  var->value= buff;
  if (thd->net.vio->ssl_arg)
    int i;
    const char *p;
    char *end= buff + SHOW_VAR_FUNC_BUFF_SIZE;
    for (i=0; (p= SSL_get_cipher_list((SSL*) thd->net.vio->ssl_arg,i)) &&
               buff < end; i++)
      buff= strnmov(buff, p, end-buff-1);
      *buff++= ':';
    if (i)
  return 0;

Suggested fix:
Make only one cipher be returned for each priotity level.
