Everyone I have observed clicks "ok" or "confirm exception" (if I 
remember the phrase correctly) as soon as possible. Sadly I think only a 
few security conscious (IT) people will actually think twice and reject 
it if they don't trust it.

That to me proves this aspect ssl is somewhat flawed in that regard. But 
then I am preaching to the choir. :-)
