I'd suggest adding an "Expires:" header (indicating the current time),
and/or a "Cache-Control: no-cache" and/or "Pragma: no-cache".
Does apache indeed return a cached page, or simply indicate that the
page is still valid? I don't think that apache will cache pages it
serves up itself (using apache as caching proxy is something else).

I guess that's because there's no sense in caching secure documents?
In short, I don't think this is a bug, more a feature.
