Typo: "contsnt"

How does ProtectionSpaceAuthenticationSchemeUnknown help us? Does it affect behavior?

Committed r57232.

We don't fall into the default case in

        if (scheme == ProtectionSpaceAuthenticationSchemeHTTPBasic || scheme == ProtectionSpaceAuthenticationSchemeDefault) {
            // The map can contain both a path and its subpath - while redundant, this makes lookups faster.
            pathToDefaultProtectionSpaceMap().set(protectionSpaceMapKeyFromURL(url), protectionSpace);

We were hitting this with "NSURLAuthenticationMethodNTLM" on 10.5, or with "NSURLAuthenticationMethodNegotiate" on 10.6.
