I don't know why this code looks like this, but I've now committed your fix to
hopefully make this work slightly better. I've also made the code include
nicer error messages in case of failures to help us track this down easier in
the upcoming test suite logs.

Showing the return codes from the function that fails will hopefully bring
more info to allow us to understand this more.

Those are pretty much all the HTTPS tests that are not expected to fail... It
could possibly indicate that the script isn't using your version of stunnel
correctly, or similar.

What happens if you run test case 300 as a single stand-alone test?

Many thanks for your work. This is how I wanted this auto-testing to be in the
first place, and now we finally get some non-linux non-solaris machines in
there. This is gonna make curl development easier to keep portable and working
on a wider set of environments.
