I've tested it, and it works just fine with our proxy server.
Can I commit it? Isn't there a release planned in a few days? 
Is the SVN repository open for commits? Or should I wait until the release is 
already tagged?

Indeed the proxy server I have to use to get into the internet sets both the 
LM and the NTLM flag in it's challenge packets. And to me it seams as if it 
realy insists in getting both information sent with the NTLMSSP_AUTH packet.

Nevertheless I'm looking forward to try your new implementation for KDE4. 

Cheers, Robert
