You are sure using a more than 10 year old system should
be considered safe enough to provide a reference?

They are. Or to be correct: The most prominent ones are,
like Firefox, Chrome, and Opera. More lightweight browsers
like dillo actually might not have this functionality.

As it has been mentioned, one certificate can be used for
several IP addresses. Both www and wiki are located at
184.108.40.206 (returned by "host" command), so there might
be a DNS issue or something comparable strange...
I've checked with Opera 11.50 here, no problems.
