I would like to point out that this is not going to work if someone visits more than 5 sites with the same authentication manager. This would have to be documentated, at least.
We could fix this by putting the retry counter in the HTTPPasswordMgr; it is not hard to put in an extra field in the password database with the retry counter. See also my remarks in issue8894
