Are you sure? I quickly reread the rfc and it say that more that one challange 
could be specified in the header, but a challenge is defined as

  challenge = auth-scheme 1*SP 1#auth-param

So the question is if the Basic must be specified after tha last parameter of 
In any case the realm is defined as quoted-string but in the above header is 
written without quote.

As side note, the THttpCli doesn't expect more than one challenge per header. 
How often is used from servers to specify more that one challenge per header?
