Digest authentication failed.

There's a couple tickets that refer to a digest authentication failure recently, for requests that worked fine a few months ago:

One was marked as "reported to LiveJournal's development staff for further troubleshooting".

Any insight from anyone here as to what's going on? Is this related to the previous "Client error: No mode specified" post at all? Is there any working method of writing a script to retrieve RSS feeds with authentication currently?
