I still think the culprit is Microsoft-IIS/7.5. It rejects the first
request as unauthenticated, which is fine, but it also closes the
connection without properly informing the client (by sending a HTTP/1.1
message without 'Connection: close' header).

Preemptive authentication helps work the problem around.

Yes, I think you're right.  Sadly, IT insists on  using IIS, so I am stuck with this behaviour.
The workaround doesn't add too much overhead, so I guess I will use it.

Thanks again,
