Strange SSL Errors happening...

If you ever encounter Firefox saying
Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long
or Chrome / Chromium / Webkit complaining with
Error 107 (net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR): SSL protocol error.
and you just reconfigured your Apache webserver, adding a new VirtualHost on port 443, make sure you didn't forget
SSLEnable on
in the VirtualHost block. Otherwise Apache tries to serve non-encrypted content over the SSL-port and web browsers don't like that and don't produce helpful error messages. Nothing in the Apache log files either...
