Actually, that was a nasty bug:
to actually save the authentication, you have to uncheck then check that
checkbox again.
The initial value was not properly used, so if you just leave the box
checked, authentication wasn't saved at all.
Only by toggling the check state, the state of the checkbox was properly
used.

Fixed this in r26991.
