New issue 3313 by HTTP authentication is required, but cannot be used with --diff-filename=-

Using rbt 0.6, I'm trying to use "rbt post" by piping in a svn diff. I'm getting this error: "HTTP authentication is required, but cannot be used with --diff-filename=-". My RB server doesn't require HTTP authentication, so I'm not sure why this happens. The same request works with rbt 0.5.1.

What version are you running? 0.5.3 - 0.6

What's the URL of the page containing the problem? N/A

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Run the following command:
svn diff [...] | rbt post --repository-url=https://svn-repos-url --username=rbuser --password=rbpass --submit-as=other-user --server=http://reviewboard-url --diff-filename=- --basedir=/basedir --summary='test' --description='test' -d

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I see the following:
