Description Martin Baulig 2014-06-02 17:15:04 UTC
This code:

	var handler = new HttpClientHandler ();
	handler.Credentials = new NetworkCredential ("mono", "monkey");
	handler.PreAuthenticate = true;

	HttpClient client = new HttpClient (handler);
	var response = await client.GetAsync (uri, HttpCompletionOption.ResponseHeadersRead);

should not send any "Authorization" header on first request.
