[ic] no images on customer side for secure pages

IC 5.6.3 Apache 2.2x

I have admin images working on secure pages, but not the customer side
secure pages. I am not even getting a placeholder for images, my parsed page
source image link looks like this:

<a href="http://www.domain.com/cgi-bin/cihs/index.html"></a>

I expect: <img src="/cihs/images/logo.png" width="136" height="60"
inserted as my image link. It's like Interchange just dropped the image on
the secure page.

This is the stock, standard cat html/ITL used to create the link/image in
<a href="[area index]">[image src="[scratch logo]" border="0"]</a>

I can get here directly:

If I change my variable.txt:
SECURE_SERVER	https(...)
it breaks, no images on secure pages.

I've cleared my cookies. I'm having the same problem on a test cat as well,
seems like this is not cat settings. I've included additional info, below,
but I don't think it is now relevant to THIS issue. 

Anybody have a suggestion? What am I missing?


I have this in variable.txt:
IMAGE_DIR	/mycat/images	Directories and Paths
DOCROOT	/home/mcr/mcr/public_html	Directories and Paths
#yes, two mcr folders
SECURE_SERVER	https://www.domain.com	Directories and Paths
SERVER_NAME	www.domain.com	Directories and Paths

I have this in catalog.cfg:
ImageDir          __IMAGE_DIR__/
ImageDirSecure    __SECURE_SERVER____IMAGE_DIR__
ImageDirInternal  http://__SERVER_NAME____IMAGE_DIR__/

CSS is also working for both admin and customer side, it wasn't for ANY
secure pages before I created a symlink in /home/mcr/mcr (which also caused
the admin images to appear):
lrwxrwxrwx  1 mcr mcr      13 Sep 23 12:50 private_html -> ./public_html

and also these, to be sure my cat didn't have an old setting
lrwxrwxrwx  1 mcr  mcr       13 Oct  7 12:49 httpdocs -> ./public_html
lrwxrwxrwx  1 mcr  mcr       13 Oct  7 12:49 httpsdocs -> ./public_html

this is my html folder in /home/mcr/mcr:
drwxr-xr-x  6 mcr  mcr     4096 Oct  7 10:00 public_html

The folder public_html has 755 permissions
