This is fixed in r81636, r81637, r81638, r81637.
Just like the Digest Authentication, the urllib2 will try for 5 times before failing for any authentication failure ( It won't lead to recursion).

I had a thought that Basic Authentication need not be retried (no where in the RFC it mentions about it), but I found some references that clients do present the dialog a couple of times for retry on wrong authentication, so we are going for the same.

This is tested with actual resource setup. Closing this issue as this bug is fixed.
