Could this be a browser issue?  This is unfamiliar territory for me, but a
recent eWeek article describes an incompatibility with certain browsers (IE)
and the digest authentication used by Apache.

    "The upshot is that IE cannot be used as a Web client for any
    Apache-based Web application that uses digest authentication. In
    addition, every non-IE browser we tested couldn't be used as a client for
    any Internet Information Services-based Web application that uses digest
    authentication. (We tested this with's Mozilla 0.9.9, Opera
    Software ASA's Opera 6.01 and the W3C's reference browser implementation
    Amaya; Netscape Communications Corp.'s Navigator doesn't currently
    support digest authentication. Static Web pages are not affected by the
    problem.) "
