Description of problem:
Upstream gnome bugs 302183 and 306877 report a problem (and a simple fix) when
doing NTLM authentication using libsoup (used by evolution-connector package to
talk to Exchnage servers).

Usernames of the form DOMAIN\USERNAME fail, due to libsoup getting confused
about the domain to supply to the server in the type 3 NTLM message.

There's a simple fix, which should be evaluated for a RHEL4 update.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See upstream bug
