  And if I may ask... why can OpenSSL go through a MAJOR version upgrade, but FreeRADIUS isn't allowed a MINOR version upgrade?

  OpenSSL 3.0.0 has other bugs, too.  Some things simply don't work.

  I am rather surprised that there's any expectation that the system could do a major version upgrade on OpenSSL, and have everything work.  I would pretty much expect random breakages in random applications.

  It's a very bad idea.  But I guess it's driven by "corporate policies", so you're stuck trying to debug a complex problem created by those policies.
