[vlc-devel] vlc, RTSP and digest authentication

It seems that when a server signals vlc that the authentication is
required to get stream via RTSP by sending "401 UNAUTHORIZED", vlc opens a
new socket to resubmit its request. This poses a problem for the server
the server is supposed to open a new client session for the new socket and
the old authentication information
such as the nonce etc should be reset for the new client session.

Anybody experienced this issue? I believe vlc is not complying with the RFC,
there is no reason why it should open
a new socket..
