Using

Java Plug-in 1.5.0_06
Using JRE version 1.5.0_06 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM

Browser is Internet Explorer 6.0.2800.1106

Background:
Our web application has 3 different applets on one page, transmitted using https. Due to a variety of factors, the name of the host does not match the name on the certificate, and we can not change that.

Problem:
We get 3 dialog boxes warning us that the names do not match, as usual. However after installing 1.5.0_06 we get 2 different undesirable behaviors:
A ) 1 or 2 of the dialog boxes are empty and small, as if only the window of the dialog box was created, with no components on it. When you resize them, they remain blank (only default background color). They can not be closed.
B) All 3 of the dialog boxes look as they should, but only one of them can be interacted with. Even after we press "Run" on the working dialog box, we are not able to interact with the other two dialog boxes.

The applets causing these security popups are in 2 different frames, and load simultaneously. The popups all appear at the same time.

We consistently see different behaviors on different PCs:
PC I : After 30 tries, it fails once, error B
PC II: After 20 tries, it works once, mostly error A
PC III: 10 tries, Mostly error A. Never worked once. After a reboot (and full cache clears) we get mostly error B. Never works.

If we disable the warnings, the page loads ok, with no errors.
