Apache SSL - Internet Explorer

I've set up a apache 1.3 with mod_ssl that need to authenticate users with digital certificates. But it only works with Mozilla well.

With IE it's asking for target's password on each request (every image, css...)

I've configured the following global parameters:

SSLRandomSeed startup builtin
SSLRandomSeed connect builtin
SSLLog /usr/local/apache-1.3.34/logs/ssl_engine_log
SSLLogLevel info

SSLSessionCache dbm:/usr/local/apache-1.3.34/logs/scache.twiki
SSLSessionCacheTimeout 600

Ant this is the virtual host configuration is:

SSLEngine on


SSLCertificateKeyFile /usr/local/apache-1.3.34/conf/ssl.key/serv-private.w02.pem
SSLCertificateFile /usr/local/apache-1.3.34/conf/ssl.crt/CERT_w02.xe.cesca.cat_2006_07_10-084501.crt

SSLVerifyClient none
SSLVerifyDepth 10

SSLOptions +ExportCertData +CompatEnvVars +StrictRequire +StdEnvVars +FakeBasicAuth

SetEnvIf User-Agent ".*MSIE.*" \
nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown \
downgrade-1.0 force-response-1.0

I suspect that is somethin related with SSLSessionCache, but I don't know what. On a Linux box is working with the same configuration.
