Browser string, apparently. I fired up Opera reporting itself as Opera,
and it bombed. Told it to say "Mozilla" and it bombed. Tried reporting
as MSIE 5.0 and it worked, but the SSL bombed.

Yeah, but the issue isn't that - conning them into letting me in is one
way of doing it, but the fundamental thing is - I have used NS+Linux on
Citibank for more than a year without issues, and all of a sudden they
claim I am incompatible???? (And Udhay - Java + Jscript both turned on,
plus Opera went in and it *doesn't have Java support).
