fair enough, but first we need to ensure that this is not a Tomcat
issue, right?  I agree that if it only happens with a certain browser
then it's unlikely that Tomcat is the issue, but TBH I'm concerned if
some hacker can drop my servers by issuing some planned https request.

that would be sufficient because as long as this problem, if it does
exist, is resolved, then it doesn't matter to me (and I believe to other
users) who fixed it.
