check_http v2.1.2 -S problems

Moving from an older version of check_http (v2.0.3) to the current version as 
part of my migration from Nagios Core v3.5.1 to v4.2.0, I find the myriad cases 
in my configuration where I wanted the checks performed using https instead of 
http, using the -S parameter, are now yielding an extra LINE in the output.

SSL Version: TLSv1.2
HTTP OK: HTTP/1.1 200 OK - 1334 bytes in 0.589 second response time

instead of
HTTP OK: HTTP/1.1 200 OK - 1334 bytes in 0.596 second response time

This results in the 1-liner status information display in the Nagios web server 
displays from status.cgi presenting what is essentially irrelevant information
"SSL Version: ..." instead of relevant version "HTTP OK"

Is there already a parameter that will suppress the extra 1st line?  If not,
could such a parameter be added?
