I just experimented with the suggestion to give High priority to requests with explicit credentials.  It appears that this breaks the test, but in a different way.  The test currently sends an async request, then logs out, and expects the async request to return 200.  With higher priority for explicit credentials, it looks like we end up sending the logout request before the async request.  I'm not sure whether we're worried about that case.

I'd be happy to also try your suggestion of storing credentials immediately, but I'm having trouble finding the code where we store the credentials.  Is that somewhere in WebCore?
