OS X Leopard Password Head-fake

Leopard wants to make sure you’re not just bluffing when you enter your password to access an Exchange WebDAV resource. The first time you enter your password, it will reject it, but then if you just resubmit without changing anything, it will let you in (assuming you actually entered the correct password). I’m not actually sure if this is a problem with OS X or Exchange. Some other people have had trouble with authentication, as has been discussed here.
