Mix Basic Auth and Shibboleth Auth

Hi list,

this is Apache 2.4.7 and SP 2.6.0, and maybe off-topic, but maybe someon
has an idea. What I want is a call to

https://user123:password@host/protected to be handled by Apache Basic
Authentication, and a call to

https://host/protected to trigger Shibboleth SP Login. I tried several
variants of

    <Location "/protected/">
                AuthType Basic  (and all the other Basic params)

                Require user user123
                AuthType shibboleth
                ShibRequestSetting requireSession 1
                require shib-session

But none works, the redirect to SP Login is triggered unconditionally.
The list mentions using the ShibCompatValidUser flag, is this correct
that my versions of Apache and SP would not use this flag? At least I
cannot see a difference.

When I used an IP address restriction instead of Basic Auth, the setup
works as intended, but that would only be the second best choice.
