It's a neon/sspi issue. Edit your apache config file, then add the line
SSPIPerRequestAuth = on
to the section where you've configured the mod_auth_sspi module (you
might have to update to a newer version of that module).

The problem is that the default setting of sspi is so that the
authentication times out, and neon would have to re-authenticate. But
neon doesn't handle the re-authentication well enough.
