There is an erratum in the errata. On page 26, the erratum by DavidBiesack referred to the X-Forwarded-By field which should have been a X-Forwarded-For. The author/editor incorrectly responded by changing the X-Powered-By to a X-Powered-For field. The X-Powered-By field is correct and needs not be changed.

3rd item of the list in the last paragraph

I think the response should be computed as follows: MD5(<A1>:<nonce>:<nc>:<cnonce>:<qop>:<A2>) RFC2617 (3.2.2.1) says that this is the right way if the qop value is "auth" or "auth-int". Only if qop is not present it should be computed as mentioned in the book. But since you specified the qop="auth" in your example request and response this would be wrong.
