I kind of get a feeling that Eric is right though, because a) he usually 
seems to know his stuff, and b) that would not be very secure, to say 
the least.
That would mean that we are back to try and figure out what exactly 
happens between IE and the server, and it what circumstances exactly IE 
sends this domain\user-id thing.

But maybe Eric can help there ?
Eric, what kind of "401" does mod_authnz_ldap send to the browser when 
it needs authentication ? Basic ?
Then I can't quite imagine Clayton's scheme working, because IE would 
never of its own device send the user's password (I don't even think it 
knows it).
