Use a proxy which authenticate using a NT-DOMAIN/NT-USER and PASSWD to logon;
the dialog asking these informations popups several times when loading a page,
usually once for each frame, iframe, image (it seems once for each GET of the
browser...). Sorry but can't give detailed information about the proxy. The
problem occurs even if account informations are stored (saved) by the browser.
The problem doesn't occur with 0.9.3 version.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use a proxy with an account NT-DOMAIN/NT-USER and PASSWD
2. Visit a web site

Actual Results:  
The proxy login dialog popups several times asking for login and password

Expected Results:  
Account information be asked just once... :-)
