Couple of things:

1) I don't like:

	<VirtualHost _default_:443>

>From the docs: "A _default_ vhost catches a request only if there is no
other vhost with a matching IP address and a matching port number for
the request." So if there is, it won't work. Replace with:

	<VirtualHost *:443>

2) also:

	ServerName myhost.come:443	

Not terribly important since an SSL VH can't be name-based, but still
used for self-referential URLs. Drop the port number since the client
already knows to use 443 because you typed "https" into the location
bar. Replace with:

	ServerName real-fully-qualified-domain-name

I suspect that the real problem is that you have a plain HTTP VH
configured which is also answering port 443. Look for all other
occurrences of <VirtualHost *:443> or similar in the main config.

If you do post more config, please cut'n'paste it into the mail. Adding
attachments is easy for you but hard for me (I have to trust you're not
sending a virus, save them, open an editor to read them, then delete
them later). Since I'm answering the questions, I'd prefer if you did
the donkey-work, if you don't mind.
