[webkit-gtk] SSL handshake failed

I have a question regarding handling of invalid certificates (expired,
etc.). Prior to WebKitGTK 1.6.x the default behavior seemed to be to just
proceed silently whenever an invalid certificate was encountered. However
I'm now using WebKitGTK 1.6.1 on Fedora 16 and find that navigating to a
page with an invalid certificate simply sets the browser content to "SSL
handshake failed" with no opportunity to proceed.
I've read that libsoup has made changes in this area (not sure how recent
they were). I tried setting the SoupSession's "ssl-strict" property to
false, but this did not change anything. Can someone tell me if there's
anything I should be doing at the WebKitGTK level to make it possible to
proceed whenever an invalid certificate is encountered? Or does this live
solely in libsoup? Ultimately we will show the user a prompter with the
certificate info, but as an initial step I'd like to revert to the old
behavior of just silently allowing the navigate to proceed.
Thank-you in advance,
