MSIE is picky about the order of headers.  Perhaps this is what we are
running into.  I found that in order to get authentication to work the
WWW-authenticate header must precede the HTTP header.  Perhaps we are
hitting another header ordering problem, although at least with 1.1.1
MSIE understands cookies sent by PHP through Apache, and I just insert
the cookies in the headers_out table and call send_http_header(), so I
don't believe there is a problem.
