Comment on post 401's, why have you forsaken me? (adventures in #webOS):
Engineers were working on this bug just earlier this week. I got a test case together and submitted a test app for them, and we traced it down to oddness with how libcurl was hooked up to WebKit for apps. Basically, it has a callback for getting user/password which wasn't being handled right.
Fix should be in the next big OS release.
