I think I have found the cause. It was not the password length, but that 
we are requiring authentication for the complete host (not just parts of 
it like we do for the test environment):
   <resin:Allow url-pattern="/*">

It seems that MCF has a problem with authentication if the context root 
requires it.

I will examine how HttpClient is configured in MCF and try to change 
some settings there and test again. We do not have this problem for 
other clients we have written which also use HttpClient. I will look 
through that code as well and compare. I cannot remember whether we are 
using preemptive basic auth in our code, but I will figure out that as well.
