Confluence CLI with Confluence HTTP Authenticator in 5.1?

I'm trying to get two add-ons to play nice together:

- Confluence HTTP Authenticator (working fine for normal users and authenticating against Shibboleth)

- Confluence CLI

These worked fine together back on 4.0.3, but I just upgraded to 5.1.3, and now when I use the Space Export command, however, I get a stack trace in my atlassian-confluence.log:

The client gets a 500 error back.

Any hints as how to get these two to play nice?
