In case of encountering the crash of this kind, please follow the <Document:762002.1> to verify  whether the SSL-handshake (HTTPS connection) could be established from the Siebel Application machine without any SSL-errors.

Also try to reproduced crash using Siebel Dedicated Web Client to simplify debugging of this problem (considering <Document:47511.1>).
