A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
The bug 4423881 has been finally fixed in JDK 1.4.2
However, the way it's fixed in JDK1.4.2 is not a fix but rather a workaround.
Users are asked to enter NT account information in order to use Plugin-based applets while they really don't have to while browsing regular pages and applets running in the native Microsoft JVM.
JRE has to support NTLM transparently for users. Security context should be taken from the current process and serialized via SSPI.
This bug can be reproduced always.
