I hadn't tried it -- vhostb is running a PHP application framework, 
while vhosta is completely static and uses no PHP.  I'll likely wind up 
giving aliasing a shot.

Yup -- using CentOS 5.3's Apache 2.2.3, which Wikipedia's SNI article 
says is about nine points behind SNI support.  That's almost certainly 
the culprit.
