This is apparently a problem with the IE 6 browser.  I don't know why I 
didn't at the time I posted this but I just tried using Netscape 7, Opera 
7.11, and Konqueror - they all work just dandy.

The issue appears to be when IE6 gets told that Digest authentication is 
required the response packet it sends back which contains all the 
authentication info isn't right.  I'm going to say this wrong but the 
portion of the response the begins with "Authentication:" has a "uri=" 
field in it.

The uri field in the Opera (and I assume Netscape and Konqueror) response 
packet looks like this:


while this same field in the IE 6 response packet looks like this:


Based on this, the error message coming from Apache makes sense now when 
using IE.
