I don't think there's currently any way to do this, but it sounds like
a useful feature if you want to open an enhancement request.

I suspect a directive could be added that invalidated the cached stuff
for the currently logged in user, and you'd wrap it in a
Directory/Location container that would trigger when the
passwd-changing URL was accessed
