URL Rewriting Interferes with HTTP Authentication

If you set a folder in the same directory as a Wordpress installation to use HTTP Basic Authentication via an .htaccess file, and then try to access that directory, you get the WordPress 404 page.
I don't have a very wide range of resources to test this in, but I'm experiencing the issue with my site, which is on site5's servers. DreamHost users have apparently experienced the same problem, as per http://wordpress.org/support/topic/55033.
