Description

Loading a WMS-Layer with an authentication request (in my case the WMS-service of the Bavarian LVG) QGIS is freezing. The program can only be stopped with the task manager.
This bug appeared with version 1.5 (Windows Stand Alone Version as well as OsGeo Installer Version).
Some further hints:
QGIS 1.4 connects to the WMS-server and loads the layer without problems. The program does not ask me for username and password, because both seem to be stored in the configuration file of QGIS.
Doing the same with QGIS 1.5, the program asks me for username and password, even though both is yet stored (entries in the editing dialogue of the WMS-connection). After typing in again username and password QGIS 1.5 connects correctly to the WMS-server and it is possible to choose a layer. But loading the layer fails and QGIS freezes.
It seems, that the program is not able to store the authentication data for the next step (that means retrieving the WMS-layer) and therefore crashes when trying to download it.

Loading of a WMS-layer with authentication request now works again (QGIS 1.6 & 1.7). Thanks a lot!

Note: Still remains the problem, that QGIS freezes, when a wms-layer requests authentication and a wrong password is entered. In this case the programm can only be stopped with the Windows task manager.

I actually get returning requests for the right password. I guess this is fixed.
