The http://user:password@site thing is completely non-standard and
doesn't work at all in most browsers, as far as I know.  So how it
works in your particular case would depend on the browser's actions,
not the servers.  Obviously your browser is not sending the
credentials until after it receives a 401, which is the standard way
to do things in general, but is a little strange given that the
browser knows the credentials.
