Have to authenticate up to 7 times from Word when using save as to WebDav

While testing 4.2.e, I get a really annoying experience in MS Word 2010 x32 on Windows 7 x64.
When I create a new document in MS Office and try to save this via WebDav to Alfresco, I have to authenticate up to 7 times until it's actually saved and the dialog will close.
When I open a Word document that already exists via WebDav, change something and do a normal 'save', there is no authentication needed.

Other programs don't any problems saving to WebDav.
Copying of files to WebDav is working fine as well.

Does this have something to do with the fix for the threefold increase in version when using MS Word with Alfresco 4.2c WebDav and older?
In the Site activity Dashlet in Share I can see that the file is added four times:

Administrator
Administrator added document Bla.docx
a minute ago
Administrator
Administrator updated document Bla.docx
a minute ago
Administrator
Administrator deleted document Bla.docx
a minute ago
Administrator
Administrator added document Bla.docx

I'm using the Webdav-implementation Windows 7 x64 and connect over SSL to Alfresco Webdav. I use the following command to connect the drive: "NET USE N: \\example.com@SSL/alfresco/webdav".
