Probably it is a bug in the server. The application called through the web 
server need an authentication. If it is missing or wrong then it return a 401 
trying to tell the client the reason of the fault. But since the authentication 
is not done at http level it can't add the WWW-Authenticate header line with 
the methods accepted.
IMHO this is wrong.
