Odd problem with hpux and http authentication

We're using web_dav and ntlm authentication (with fallback to basic) for
our subversion setup. It works perfectly fine from windows, linux and
solaris clients -- but hpux clients refuse to authenticate.

Debugging this problem, it appears that hpux is encrypting the
authorization header differently. Same username/password combination:

hpux:
a3RyYXBzem86a2FzaWFwYXM=

Linux:
a3RyYXBzem86a2FzaWFwYXNz

Linux authenticates fine, hpux fails. It appears the first few bits are
username, then password, then checksum? I'm not well versed in this, so
only a guess.

Does anyone have any insight into what is causing the problem?

Thanks!
