Right, then that's not SSL vhosting. 

If you try to define 2 SSL vhosts on the same IP, you'll get the same
server certificate sent for each  vhost (basically you always get the
cert of the first vhost). The content is vhosted as usual.

You frigged it :) I know of certain browsers that don't tolerate duff
certificates, though most you can override it.

It's not just a computer -- it's your ass.
