There seem to be a number of both fedora and gnome bugs surrounding this
issue ( cheif among
but I'm not totally sure they're applicable to me.

If it's any help, it's just regular old http-basic authentication on
over HTTPS.

Any ideas?  I'm comfortable building from source if that's
necessary...anything to get rid of this other windows box under my desk!

Thanks much.
