Hi Darshit,

I made many test runs in the last time and never ever had 
Test-proxied-https-auth.px fail here nor an a second machine (at home).

AFAIR, we did not identify a race condition (or let's say a design flaw). The 
test suite starts the server and talks with it before starting Wget.

Please append your patch - I would like to further investigate what is really 
going wrong (first of all I would like to reproduce the failure). I assume the 
sleep just disguises a deeper problem that may pop up later in one or another
