In general it could be useful to include the "reason phrase" in the
error message, so it could say something like:

  "The REPORT status was 405 (Method Not Allowed), but expected 200."

which might give a better idea of what the problem was. (In your case
this wouldn't actually have helped, since the proxy gave out the wrong
status code; a 403 or a 405 would have been correct, not a 400)
