I have no idea.  Far less than use Apache, of course, but the number appears 
to be growing steadily.

http://trac.lighttpd.net/trac/wiki/PoweredByLighttpd has a short list of 
those that bothered to add their names, but that doesn't mean a whole lot 
and it doesn't say anything at all about the SSL implementation.

Both lighty and Apache use OpenSSL.  I'm using it and haven't seen any 
battlefield casualties so far. ;-)  Apache has its share of (even recent) 
security issues, including some related to mod_ssl. Lighty seems to be 
fitting well for those that need a smaller, simpler server, which is why I 
mentioned it.  I'll leave it as an exercise for the interested to determine 
if they want to use it.
