Safari PDF Display Problem .htaccess / auth

Problem: I have a PDF that is dynamically generated using php. The server area is protected using simple .htaccess authorization. I log in and can view the PDF within all browsers (firefox, iexplore) except Safari on Mac. Safari on Windows works. All I see is a blank page, no errors. Same happen with PHP Session auth.

Solution: None.

Reason: This is a bug related to the Adobe PDF plugin for Safari. When using the build-in PDF Viewer of Safari, everything works. A good place to start debugging is the Apache access log. See Apple Discussions

Error Configuration: Safari 4, OSX 10.5.7, Adobe Reader 9
