That's because what you're trying to do is impossible.  You cannot use
SSL with name-based virtual hosts.  Each SSL vhost must be on a unique
IP:port combination.  This is a fundamental limitation of SSL and HTTP,
it has nothing to do with Apache or any other server implementation. 
See the FAQ on for the reason why.
