  Changes between 0.9.6g and 0.9.6h  [xx XXX xxxx]
 
+  *) Reorder cleanup sequence in SSL_CTX_free(): only remove the ex_data after
+     the cached sessions are flushed, as the remove_cb() might use ex_data
+     contents. Bug found by Sam Varshavchik <mrsam@courier-mta.com>
+     (see [openssl.org #212]).
+     [Geoff Thorpe, Lutz Jaenicke]
+
   *) Fix typo in OBJ_txt2obj which incorrectly passed the content
      length, instead of the encoding length to d2i_ASN1_OBJECT.
