The result is a new identity pref is automatically created in Keychain with the cert selected in the dialog. Safari won't work due to these multipe identities. I delete the new identity pref, then it works fine. 

I have only three sites that I can test with, 2 out of 3 fail.

Also I get failures with a clean systems: format, install, update, with nothing bought over from any other disk.

It appears to be related to the new feature in Safari that prompts for the certificate, when it works it is great, when it fails it is worse then useless.
