Firstly, thank you very much for nginx.
I find a strange behavior while using HTTP authentication :

I log 401 attempts with this settings :

error_page 400 404 401 /error.html;
location = /error.html {
 access_log /var/log/nginx/4xxerror.log;

All work fine but i still have a 401 error when i first request a page so it's while i get the prompt (i haven't click ok or cancel yet).
I don't think it's normal, it should only return a 401 if there is a wrong user/passwd or pressed the cancel button.
Could you avoid this 401 when no login have been entered yet ?
