    Code is below (stripped of whatever we can't show), its really simple, we stick a wsse security header into the envelope, and send a really simple array.

    Somehow this takes about 9 seconds for nusoap to format, then from the debug curl is invoked and in less than a millisecond, the error: HTTP Error: cURL ERROR: 28: SSL connection timeout   shows.
