hmmm... that sounds suspiciously similar to what we had happening.  I 
just can't see why Apache Httpd wouldn't be able to handle SSL 
connections at least as well as Tomcat, so there's clearly something 
else going on here.

Is your system on Windows, Linux, something else?   And what versions of 
Tomcat/Apache were you using?
