From what I can see Microsoft's flavour of Webdav client only seems to function correctly (ish) when the call to OPTIONS is not authenticated. There are still configuration changes that are required to allow basic authentication over HTTP (Instructions at: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2123563#LetMeFixItMyselfAlways)

Further, on controller.rb (line 185), there is a check for names being empty and raising a bad request in the case that it is; IE requests no information, which is it's way of wanting all information back - commenting this line out, allowing it to fall to the line below which allows for names population in case of it being empty; seems to allow listing and mounting as desired.

The earlier link to documentation is more for documentation on readme, as others will probably find that windows vista / 7 will not connect to basic authenticated webdav without ssl unless that guide is followed.
