Having read the rest of the thread, I'd offer a few comments:

- Norman has it exactly right; once you create one VH, the "main server"
isn't used anymore so every site has to go into a VH.
- If you want name-based VHs, you *must* use a NameVirtualHost
directive. So your statement "I do *NOT* have a NameVirtualHost
directive" makes no sense.
- In the NameVirtualHost directive and in VH containers, it is wisest to
use only IP addresses rather than domain names. Internally, apache needs
a TCP/IP address here and if you use a domain name you make apache
dependent on DNS and leave yourself open to misconfiguration if the IP
changes for a given domain.
- At the bottom of your post, you indicate you are trying NBVHing with
SSL. That can't work:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/ssl/ssl_faq.html#vhosts2 (the reason is
inherent in HTTP, it's not an apache feature).

Rgds,
Owen Boyle
