Try editing the servers config file (settings->network->edit). At the
bottom in the [global] section, uncomment/add the line
http-auth-types = basic;digest;negotiate

(that's the default).
Then try removing some of the authentication types

If that doesn't help, add the line
http-library = serf

which will change the http library from neon (default) to serf. Maybe
serf works better for you (even though it's still considered beta!).
