It's unsurprising that 2.878 didn't fix this, as it didn't contain any
changes intended to.
However, since I had the code open in my editor, I took look at this...
This is pretty difficult to investigate without access to a (working)
NTLM proxy (getting even ntlm_fake_auth working in squid is beyond me...).
Nevertheless, testing with that did suggest something, so I built a
snapshot (See  for source) which tries something different, and does
a bit more logging, so setup.log.full might shed a bit more light on why
this doesn't work.
