[webkit-dev] Authentication dialog

In Safari, when a site requires authentication, a dialog/sheet is put  
up requesting username and password.   How can I trigger that in my  
WebKit based application?   I noticed Shiira puts up the exact same  
dialog (accept with a different icon), so I assumed this is a system  

I've tried didReceiveAuthenticationChallenge delegates, but this  
hasn't work in every case, especially on Leopard.  The above-mentioned  
dialogs work for me every time.

Thanks in advance,

Bill Patterson
