Force SSL to reauthenticate

Using Apache 2.0.46 and PHP 4.4.1.  I've set up an administrative section to my site secured with SSL and .htaccess-style text files.  Part of the administrative section is the ability to manage the local employees, including adding/removing and changing passwords.  There are certain points at which I will rewrite the entirety of the text file to 'reconcile' my table-based employee list and the web server's access list.  My concern now is forcing an SSL reset on any existing sessions.

I've tried destroying the sessions, and that does not seem to work.  I get a new session id, etc., but my SSL login is maintained.  Is there any way to forcibly reset the SSL logins globally, and trigger this reset from PHP, HTTP headers, or similar manner?  Obviously, this needs to be solely server-side...the most the end user should see is the new login dialog box.

For reference, I found this in a PAQ:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q195192/

This details how to create an ActiveX control to do just what I need.  The problem is, however, that I'm using Linux and Apache, with Firefox on the client side.  This IS an intranet environment, though, so if this method will work I will readily accept it as a solution.  Can anyone provide an example of how to implement this solution?
