This looks very nice.

Did you accidentally remove supportsTransparentAuth in the unix version 
of NTLMAuthentication.java ? It is used reflectively by 
sun.net.www.protocol.http.NTLMAuthenticationProxy. Otherwise, this looks
fine to me.


Note to self; I need to revisit the sun.reflect properties.
