Access to status.xml is denied
After upgrade to 4.1.1849 an access to http://<tvheadend>:9981/status.xml seems to be malfunct (HTTP 401).

Which client? curl must be forced to use digest (--digest option). Or you may disable the new digest authentisation in the general / base config in tvh (not recommended - password is sent over net for this basic http auth).
It's a Kodi-Addon which uses urllib2 Authorization since times (2011). See here: https://github.com/b-jesch/service.tvh.manager/blob/master/default.py#L145

No, the client should support digest auth, too. The basic auth is too weak. Note that tvheadend allows forced basic auth from client, too (client should try forcibly the basic auth without waiting for 401 / WWW-Authenticate: Basic reply).
