Can't offer any help, just corroboration - I have a client who 
intermittently gets the same thing.  What flavor of SSL are you running and 
how strong is the encryption?  Let me know and I will try to check his - 
perhaps the common element is there.

Several IE-specific issues have cropped on on this list in the past - this 
may have been among them.  You could search 'IE SSL 404' in the archives 
and see what you get.
