we could resolve this by having the user's browser to the check instead 
of the server. basically, use an <img> tag to do the test and instead 
of just returning 200 in the response the server sets a variable 
indicating that clean url is OK. so on the first view of 
admin/settings, everyone sees disabled ... this is just one of many 
possible solutions. i do think the core need for httpAuth is for the 
browser to do the test, not the server.
