I suppose it's alarming that I see no SSL handshake at all.  httpd
opens a TCP connection and closes it immediately.  There are no
application-layer packets at all.  SYN/SYN-ACK/ACK, FIN.

This setup was working for months using httpd 2.0, although I see that
I asked about the same behavior when first setting up 2.0 and then it
cleared up for no apparent reason.

Typically when a software vendor says that a product is "intuitive" he
means the exact opposite.
