It's unsurprising that 2.878 didn't fix this, as it didn't contain any changes intended to.

However, since I had the code open in my editor, I took look at this...

This is pretty difficult to investigate without access to a (working) NTLM proxy (getting even ntlm_fake_auth working in squid is beyond me...).

Nevertheless, testing with that did suggest something, so I built a snapshot (See [1] for source) which tries something different, and does a bit more logging, so setup.log.full might shed a bit more light on why this doesn't work.

Please test.
