I've had the same problem, and I'm speculating that it first asks the
domain browser, because I got an old NT4 box to authenticate against, lol.
But saying ok without credentials did it for me that one time I needed
it. I loved hoary, having a windows network icon on the desktop from day
one, just browsing the network anonymously until needed to authenticate.
But it might have helped somwhere els.
