If you are using php as a module, you could probably check
$_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER'] as described here:
http://ca3.php.net/features.http-auth

If it is empty or unset, it is likely an initial login attempt.  If
there is something in it but you still wound up at your 401 page, then
it is probably a bad password.

I've never tried it, but it should work.
