If setting 'ssl-strict' to 'false' fixes the issue, then that means that either
the certificate is not a very good certificate, or that the SSL/TLS connection
the server offers isn't very good :-)

It' rather difficult to say anything more specific about this, as you didn't
mention which site is having problems ;-)

There are a whole bunch of SSL test tools out there. Running one of those
usually gives you a clue as to what's wrong. Here's a list:
