Actually, I'm using name based virtual hosting. I also have these in my 
httpd.conf file:

NameVirtualHost *:80
NameVirtualHost *:443
NameVirtualHost *:444

I understand that apache can only use one certificate per IP 
address/port combination (because in the protocol, the certificate is 
needed before any hostname is sent by the browser). However, the port 
itself should identify the correct certificate. (There is only one 
certificate specified for *:444 virtual hosts, and another one for *:443 
virtual hosts.)
