Hi Gabriel.  Thanks for the report.  I can reproduce this by script
scanning an SSL scanner from Windows (e.g. "nmap -p443 -P0 -sC -d
www.amazon.com").  One difference though is that my Nmap doesn't
crash--just that script bails out.  Presumably the same thing would
happen on Unix if compiled --without-openssl.

I think the script (showHTMLTitle.nse) just needs to be modified to
skip ssl servers if OpenSSL is not available.  Does anyone have an
idea for the best way to do this?  Perhaps there should be (or already
is?) a way to query for this information.  Or maybe the script just
needs to look for tye "you don't have OpenSSL" error from
