WebDAV working but with issues

We got WebDAV up and running on one of our Alfresco servers with normal authentication (internal database). We use Alfresco 1.2.1 on RHEL 4. I can access the WebDAV client form WinXP Pro, no problem there. Mount a drive (http://our_server/alfresco/webdav), login and done.

Issue 1: When the WebDAV view opens I have to login a second time. When I navigate to a document and try to open that one I have to login a third time. When I close this document and reopen it… again a new authentication window pops up. How can we avoid this? SSO is not an option here.

Issue 2: I can't open the Alfresco-Tutorial.pdf through WebDAV. Brand new and shiny Alfresco installation, connected over WebDAV with the admin user. I can see the tutorial but nothing happens when I try to open it (copy it to my desktop and opening it from there does work). I can open it when I use a browser (with the webdav link and through the web client). I tried to upload another PDF in different folders but I can never open it.

Issue 3: Created a dummy user with no read access on the Data Dictionary space, logged in in the web client, fine can't see this space. When I do the same with WebDAV I can see and open this space where I don't have access to.

Any thoughts?
