      This isn't actually an issue with the stubmaker, it's at the user-agent level.
      What happens is that it doesn't call get_basic_credentials until the initial
      attempt to authenticate fails.

      When you create the client object, use the transport() method to get at the
      underlying useragent (SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Client is a subclass of
      LWP::UserAgent), and use that value to call the credentials() method. See the
      man page for LWP::UserAgent for the syntax of what to pass to credentials().
