I posted a request on a local OSS mailing list (I'm in South Africa by
the way) asking if anyone is having the same issues and I got a reply
from a person having the same issue. I'm not sure if our beloved
Telkom (worst telco in the world) is doing something wonky with SSL
packets (they have a penchant for traffic shaping) but that doesn't
explain why other sites usin SSL works fine or why I am able to log in
at work (which is a large SA corporation).
