      Description

      I am using ajax to authenticate with a username and password. This works as expected on iOS, Android and on desktop browsers. However when recieveing a 401 in phonegap for WP8, the app stops responding. Anything else looks ok (200, 404, 500).

      This issue is not seen in IE on the phone, only in phonegap.

      I have found out that if the server does not put "WWW-Authenticate:" in the response header, ajax will exit as expected and other javascript code will run fine.

      Has anyone seen this kind of issue, and a possible solution that does not involve changing things server side?
