 No, but sendmail is completely broken at mine (timeouts in all TLS sessions)
 and this is caused by this patchset, as it works fine if I undef NAMED_RESN.
 Hence I am looking for possible explanations. 
 Unfortunately it is not one of these two problems, as I still get the
 tiemout problem with your updated patchset. There must be other bugs.
 While there, even with NAMED_RESN there is are still many sites sendmail
 cannot connect to because of SSL_OP_TLSEXT_PADDING introduced in 
 OpenSSL 1.0.1g. Since that cause troubles on latest NetBSD releases, we
 need to add that patch which was accepted upstream by sendmail maintainers:

 Busy on something else, I am sure you can understand that.
