Hi guys, I haven't fully confirmed this is what's going on, but it appears an account I use for doing only user/show calls, and ONLY via oauth is getting some bad error messages.
I think in this case the account has hit it's oauth rate limit, and a few more user/show calls have been attempted. The error message being returned is a 401 and has a response body saying: "Basic authentication is not supported" when it should perhaps read "rate limit exceeded".
