New issue 3203 by rbt doesn't authenticate some requests

What version are you running?

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Set up a web server configured for basic authentication over HTTPS
2. Set up a ReviewBoard install configured for authentication over LDAP
3. Ensure no .reviewboardrc is set for a user
3. Attempt to query ReviewBoard using manually-specified username and password: rbt status --server https://<host>/reviewboard --user <user> --password <password>

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
rbt outputs:
Attached is rpt --debug output.

Please provide any additional information below.

Apache access log shows two requests, with the second lacking any authorization: - user [23/Jan/2014:14:35:19 +0000] "GET /reviewboard/api/ HTTP/1.1" 200 15665 "-" "RBTools/0.5.5" - - [23/Jan/2014:14:35:20 +0000] "GET /reviewboard/api/info/ HTTP/1.1" 401 8817 "-" "RBTools/0.5.5"

This seems to be something to do with PresetHTTPAuthHandler in being used again before reset and so not adding auth headers.
