 fix for incompatability with lwp 6.x under persistent environments
 LWP::UserAgent::credentials and LWP::UserAgent::get_basic_credentials changed at some 
 point around after 5.805 and before 6.02. Also, LWP::Authen::Basic changed. 
 Authen::Simple::HTTP implements credential handling by overriding the 
 get_basic_credentials methods in LWP::UserAgent (or the given LWP class).
 This breaks with the new LWP because Authen::Simple::HTTP keeps the LWP::UserAgent 
 instance as class data (Class::Data::Inheritable), so a new instance of LWP isn't 
 created for every new Authen::Simple::HTTP... and LWP is caching the user/pass per 
 instance (per host+port+realm) via the credentials sub in an instance variable.
