Qt 5.7.1: No SOCKS5 authentication

(I'm currently using pre-built binaries because I don't know how to build the web engine module myself)
it seems that SOCKS5 authentication is not possible with the Web Engine?
I'm setting an application-wide proxy, then loading the page.
With wireshark I can see that Qt sends "5 0 1" (socks protocol) which means "no authentication method", the server refuses.
But I'm setting user+password:
QNetworkProxy proxy; proxy.setType(QNetworkProxy::Socks5Proxy); proxy.setHostName("..."); proxy.setPort(1080); proxy.setUser("..."); proxy.setPassword("..."); QNetworkProxy::setApplicationProxy(proxy);
Also, authenticationRequired & proxyAuthenticationRequired signals are never fired from the page.
What's going on here?
