Perhaps there's a problem there too? Did you install mod_jk by hand compiled from sources from the Tomcat website?

Maybe. The NTLM HTTP Authentication protocol is a stateful 3 message
handshake. Look at the bottom of the NTLM HTTP Filter docs for details. In
particular the 2nd and 3rd messages need to share the same HTTP session
to store the transaction state. It's a delicate thing that is the source
of 90% of problems reported on this list.
