This will work with Basic bu not with NTLM because (IIRC) the authentication
phase is started by the server with the first 401.

Is there a way to empty the socket buffer?

I'm trying to modify directly the component but without success :-(

I think that it must be handled directly by the component. Too difficult if not
impossible to handle when NTLM is involved.
