Konqueror/KIO slave Basic Access problem in KDE3.5.3

I've rolled my own KDE's since way back in 1.x days, so hopefully I 
now what I'm doing to some extent - maybe not. I've installed 
KDE3.5.3 on RHEL3 using GCC 3.2.3. I quickly encountered an issue in 
konqueror that I then also saw in akregator too:

When I try to access web pages and RSS feeds from web pages that are 
authenticated (with apache Basic Access) the connection is made, but 
the authentication dialogue is not shown and the throbber spins for 
ever - or at least until I give up. https and http accesses fail 
identically. If I turn off BA on the http server, access is restored. 
Firefox works with BA on on the server and my KDE3.5.0 konqueror 
works fine as well.

Is there something that I am missing or has support for BA been 
removed between 3.5.0 and 3.5.3?
