I'd also like to see a test for other resources.  In your test, you
had previously visited the unauthenticated resources.  What about
resource /d?

It all comes down to the criteria used by browser to optimize the
sending of authentication information in requests.  It might use path
hierarchy, or something else.  In the end, it might be easier to ask,
or directly check.
