SSL v3 handshake error:  bad_record_mac

I am developing a Java client application to work with a web server.  Everything was fine until the server was changed to strictly use the ssl v3 protocol.  During the handshaking, I now get a bad_record_mac error during the handshake's final stage.

From the ssl log:

main, WRITE: SSLv3 Change Cipher Spec, length = 1
*** Finished
verify_data:  { 103, 120, 75, 207, 55, 129, 35, 51, 184, 41, 70, 157, 27, 177, 2
05, 106, 79, 118, 93, 206, 248, 35, 80, 85, 214, 168, 197, 232, 64, 190, 102, 93
, 134, 188, 148, 138 }
***
main, WRITE: SSLv3 Handshake, length = 56
main, READ: SSLv3 Alert, length = 2
main, RECV SSLv3 ALERT:  fatal, bad_record_mac

The "change cipher spec" above appears to be successful from the server.  The problem seems to be that the client is not successfully processing its final "change cipher spec."

Are you trying to make a call before a response has come back to the previous call or accessing the same socket in multiple threads, trying to do read/ write simulatenously? If so, don't do it.
