linux 2.2.5-15 i686 unknown
- DirectoryIndex is set to index.html
- SSLVerifyClient is set to optional in order to be able to use 'basic' or 'certificate' fake

- Using account/password and https://www.xxx.yy/ returns us the index.html page (compliant
with DirectoryIndex directive)
- Same but using a certificate returns 403 FORBIDDEN error
- Same but referring index.html (https://www.xxx.yy/index.html) returns the index.html page

Same http.conf file used with apache 1.3.14 / mod-ssl 2.7 works nicely. 

Seems it could be related to the "security fix release addressing a problem which could lead
to a directory listing being displayed in place of an error message" ? 

I have'nt been able to trace this way as changes have'nt been source documented !
