HTTP Proxy Authentication Error (Base64)

I`m trying to connect with FTP through a HTTP-Proxy with username and password (Basic-Auth).
Its working for some accounts and for some not.

After making some network traces I have seen, that WinSCP adds a "=" to every encoded username/password-string, also when its not necessery.
In my case I have an username/password, thats encoded 24Bytes (without "=" at the end), so no "=" should be added.
WinSCP adds one "=", so I have 25Bytes and the proxy couldn't understand this and gives a 407 error (Proxy request failed, can't connect through proxy server HTTP/1.1 407 authenticationrequired).

Version WinSCP: 4.3.4, 4.3.6 and 5.0.5 (Beta)
Windows Version: Windows XP and Windows 7
The Proxy is a McAfee Webgateway 7.

Re: HTTP Proxy Authentication Error (Base64)

Can you send me an email, so I can send you back a debug version of WinSCP to track the problem? Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have sent the email. Thanks.

You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile.
