When a "normal" client is accessing a protected resource, the generic
sequence is:
- C: GET /protected HTTP/1.1
- S: HTTP/1.1 401 Authentication Required
- C: (prompts user for username/password)
- C: GET /protected HTTP/1.1 (including username/password)
- S: HTTP/1.1 200 OK

Is your failing client sending the second request, and if so, what does it
look like? Is Apache ever sending the second response, and if so, what does
it look like?

And, again, is there *any* sort of proxying between the server and client?
