Improve authentication dialogue so that the reason for authentication is clear
As it exists currently, the LDAP authentication mechanism is reused for a number of authentication scenarios. It is not always clear why a login prompt is being presented (is this for searching? uploading an actor to the repository? etc...).

Now that some of the threading issues are being hammered out, this should be easier to work with.
Adding a message area that can hold text that describes the resource needing authentication would be a logical next step. The authentication "domain" is already shown in the frame title of the dialogue box.
