I did that just today and I can confirm that behavior. I moved a small 
repository  (~150 commits, thg transferred about 12 MiB data) to 
BitBucket. When I pushed, the transfer started and it took a while (I 
didn't use a stop watch, but I'd say it was a minute) before thg asked 
for username and password. During this time the transfer was paused. 
After I provided the information, the transfer resumed.
I can't say anything about "authorization failed", because I typed my 
username and password correctly ;-)

Intel Core i7 (QuadCore) with 6 GiB RAM
Debian GNU/Linux unstable, Kernel 2.6.39
Mercurial: Mercurial Distributed SCM (version 1.8.3)

The computer is in a subnet behind the VDSL router (NAT) with a static 
IP. The WAN (e.g. internet) IP of the router itself is also static.

IMHO: I doubt that this is a Mercurial problem, I suspect the BitBuckt
