you have to move that virtual host off to its own unique ip:port combination.
the secure layer kicks in before any name based directives, and will operate
based on the IP:port that matches the request.  any domain that resolves to the
same IP address as your ssl settings will have access to the ssl certificate,
since the conenction is made, vertificates swapped, then it checks for
directories, matches, etc...

Apache2 may change this, don't know, havn't gone there yet, but that has been
the way it is in 1.3 for some time.
