Insecure Sharing

Still trying to find a work-around for sharing calendars between multiple Macs, now that I have dropped .Mac (as unreliable).

I have a WebDav Server at home, running in Ubuntu on an old Mac Cube.
It is set up to only work via SSL with a self-signed certificate.

Once I had set the certificate to be 'Always Trusted' in KeyChain.app, iCal was able to publish the calendar via https://
Great I thought, I am on my way ......

The next step, subscribing to the calendar from another machine proved to be impossible, for some reason, iCal cannot subscribe via SSL, only publish.

WTF?

This is so dumb !!!

Did Apple do this on purpose to somehow 'promote' .Mac ?

Will they fix this in Leopard, with the new support for CalDAV ?
