Bug #2541

HTTP 401 Unauthorized only sent back after full POST request is read.

Description

For IE 11 at least, sending back the 401 after the request headers will cause it to stop trying to upload the (potentially very large) post body when HTTP authorization is required.

It'd be great if lighttpd could send back the 401 without the browser sending the full file, only to send it again with the Authorization header on the second try.
