The problem is that a IP address is priorized in favor of a wildcard by apache. But this can be avoided by the correct IP setup:

1) Create a "fake" client account and assign it the "main" ip which is internally used for all sites with *. So there is no site where this IP address is selected directly,all sites that point in DNS to this IP use * instead.

2) All websites that dont use SSL use *. The clients have no other choice then using * as there are no other IP's active on the server 'globally' and the only other IP is assigned to the fake client.

3) If you add a ssl site that requires a separate IP, add this new ip under system > Server IP and assign it to the client that owns this sl site. So this IP will only show up for him and no other customers.
