well, my problem is even mentioned on
http://jcifs.samba.org/src/docs/ntlmhttpauth.html under "HTTP POST and
Protecting Sub-Content"..

in the meantime i found a solution myself, though it's not what i hoped for. as
it requires editing the registry it's not acceptable for our customers (who's
administators would have to edit a few hundred registries)..

the key is a DWORD-entry:
set it to '1' and voilà, IE won't resend ntlm-authentication-data unless it is
asked for it ("unauthorized"-response from the server) and everything's good and
fine and shiny. only not for me... :(
