Don't have it in front of me, but no I didn't figure that

See, the thing is, I want it to keep whatever authentication
method it's already determined. See, I reuse the curl
handle for a bunch of files, so I don't want it to redo the
authentication dance. FYI, 7.13.1 did not do this, this is
a regression.

If I set CURLOPT_USERPWD to "" and use AUTH_ANY, will
everything work once it figures out that NTLM is required?
