As far as I can tell, IE for the Mac (I work in OS X) has numerous little
issues, PLUS also does not gracefully handle self-signed certs. I was
ultimately able to get IE 5 for Mac to accept self-signed certs created with
OpenSSL 0.9.6 -- not sure if that's v2 or v3. I did nothing that I knew of
to force it back to v2.
