Password-protected dirs working but reporting unexpected errors

I sent this out a week ago and received no reply,
so I am trying a second and final time to see if
anyone can assist:

Password protected directories are working fine,
but when a legitimate user logs in, the following
appears in the error log:

[error] 3876#0: *12 no user/password was provided for basic  

despite the fact that the username and password
*were* supplied, and access was granted.

A bad username/password produces the expected error:

[error] 3876#0: *12 user "whatever" was not found in "/etc/nginx/htpass"

Has anyone else seen this or have any idea why such
an error would be triggered?
