From the WebDAV appendix of the Subversion Book:

   "If the computer is a member of an NT Domain, then it seems to be
   unable to connect to the WebDAV share. It repeatedly asks for a
   name and password, even when the Apache server isn't issuing an
   authentication challenge! Some have speculated that this might
   happen because WebFolders is specifically designed to operate
   against Microsoft's SharePoint DAV server. If the machine isn't
   part of an NT Domain, then the share is mounted without a
   problem. This mystery is not yet solved."
