Yep. BASIC auth and non-ASCII passwords is a mess before it even gets to Tomcat.
Mozilla definitely (and I suspect IE as well) does a lossy conversion of
non-ASCII usernames and passwords before base64 encoding. There is no way I can
see of Tomcat supporting BASIC auth for non-ASCII usernames and passwords as
things currently stand.

On to FORM auth...
