This patch fixes commit r707403.  When a web page is accessed that requires a set of credentials, but no error page is returned, kio_http returns an error of page not found.  Commit r707403 attempts to fix errors when no error page is returned by the server with an error occurs, but it also blocks a 401 from being properly handled.  This bug is set off when eGroupware is used with the groupdav resource (thus the related bug).  This patch fixes the issue by ignoring a 401 error code in the handling.

This addresses bug 186763.


  /trunk/KDE/kdelibs/kioslave/http/http.cpp 1008022 



Removing the 401 from the case doesn't cause the original bug report (147812) to regress.  When clicking cancel on the password dialog, the same error page occurs.  When clicking ok with a blank username/password, nothing happens, but the same behaviour happens without the patch.  Wrong passwords do the samething as well.

Testing done with KDE 4.3.0 and KDE svn.  Web server was lighttpd.  Authentication was tested with mod_auth and the groupdav support in egroupware running on the local system.  Tested with both kioclient and konqueror.
