[Qgis-developer] Problems editing WFS in QGIS

Upon further investigation it appears that WFS authentication is 
broken.  Further testing shows that the Add WFS dialog does not display 
layers that require basic auth - even when the login is supplied.  It 
will only show the public layers.  Note that the WMS auth works great 
for me.

When you try to edit a WFS-T, I believe it is also failing to use the 
supplied login info.  Which results in the error I'm seeing below.

I've added the additional details to the existing bug at 

Since this makes WFS of very limited use, is this planned to be fixed in 
an up-coming release?  I'll happily be a tester for this!
