NTLM authentication failed due to closing of connection

Clearly, there are side effects. For instance, 'expect: 100-continue' handshake
simply does not work with squid. 

The problem is that the only way of knowing what kind of proxy we are dealing
with is to receive 407 status code. In all other cases HttpClient will happily
send HTTP/1.1 requests even though the proxy may be compliant with HTTP/1.0 spec
only. I strongly believe that HttpClient should behave consistently regardless
of whether proxy authentication is used or not, whether preemptive
authentication is enabled or not. There should be no code modality. It is by far
a greater evil, imho
