HTTP Authentication Fails

For some reason, I cannot get SourceTree to authenticate using vanilla HTTP authentication. It will work just fine if I point my browser to the URL and enter usernane/password when prompted. However, when I try the same procedure from SourceTree, I get at least two more repeated prompts for my username/password before it gives up and says it isn't a valid URL.

Any advice on things to try to sort thisout?

Hi Wilco. Could you post your URL format? (doesn't need to include actual paths)
