Fix HTTP server library handling of credentials

Currently the http library only checks credentials when authentication
is required. This means that any credentials are accepted on the root
resource, for example, which makes problems hard to diagnose - the
user/pw works for all queries, until one tries to do a modification at
which point fails.

This patch changes the PreHandleRequest() function to not ignore
credentials when passed, even if we don't require authentication. This
makes the behavior of RAPI more predictable.
