Considering both the above, I doubt that this will help, but just in 
case you missed it : there is a long, long history of successive 
versions of Windows so-called "web folders" (aka web redirector) 
implementations that did not work, or worked only with patches, or 
worked differently wheter you had/have this or that version of MS-Office 
installed on the same PC or not and so on..
I would not be that surprised if Vista's implementation was different 
yet again, and caused problems yet again.

Summaries (apparently recently updated) can be found here :

Maybe one hint, if you have not seen or tried it before : when you 
create/connect the DAV folder under Windows, at the moment it asks for 
the URL/path, make sure to add the :port number after the hostname, even 
if it is the default port for the protocol.
Like, connect to "http(s)://"
