This is a known bug in MSIE.  See, for example, 
http://www.apacheweek.com/issues/02-12-20#dev

It is even documented in apache:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/mod_auth_digest.html#using

There is a patch to hack-around the MSIE bug:
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=apache-httpd-dev&m=105510860505665&w=2

But there was never a developer concensus on whether patching around
MSIE's problems was a good idea.

I'll leave this bug open to see if anyone's opinion has changed.
I personally think the work-around is a good idea.
