If using proxy authentication:
a) User has not logged in yet. Results in proxy sending a 407 message
"login required" with - as logged user name..
b) You might have a leak in your ruleset, allowing some access without
first logging in

It using ident:
You are probably not requiring ident lookups to finish. Add a
http_access rule maching ident lookups.
