The creators of LibreSSL have stated that the target platform is going to be OpenBSD, which does things quite differently from Linux. Although I haven't had a chance to test it myself, I would hazard a guess that these issues don't exist on that platform.

They indicated that a lot of work would be required to port LibreSSL to Linux due to the inherent lack of certain secure functions within Linux.
