I don't know anything about Windows authentication, but I could
get some hints from Ivan Zhakov via IRC (he doesn't follow this
mailing list). Perhaps this information helps:

Apparently, if the server uses NTLM only, serf cannot authenticate
to it, while neon could. serf supports SPNego though:

Does this apply to your situation? Can you fix the problem by
changing the server's configuration?

The 1.8 release notes currently do not document the issue with NTLM-only
servers. In my opinion they should mention it.
