      Description

      Similar to HTTPCLIENT-1107, but for Proxy authentication. It appears that subsequent authentication schemes are not attempted if an earlier scheme fails.

      In our case, a proxy supports Negotiate, NTLM and BASIC authentication. When NTML authentication fails due to the wrong credentials being supplied, BASIC authentication is never attempted against the proxy.

      I am a Gradle core developer, and we use HttpClient internally for dependency resolution. This issue was reported by one of our users.
