So, I finally had a chance to poke around a little bit more and it looks like both the HGAssetService and
HGInventoryService are picking up authentication details when they shouldn't as they are public services that need to be
accessible from foreign grids.

So in git master 441d77b5 I configured an authentication override for both of these in Robust.HG.ini.example.  Before
the override I couldn't rez in osgrid's Sandbox Plaza with an avatar from a home grid with AuthType detials set in
[Network].  With the override I can.

For those who want to set AuthType for other services but already have a Robust.HG.ini, the settings to add are

AuthType = None

AuthType = None

Setting up service authentication adds another layer of security in case one forgets to firewall off the private service
port (or some later misconfiguration exposes it).  Therefore I would highly recommend it for any grid installation that
is exposed to the Internet.
