Thanks for the hint Dan, but I still don't get it. I have put this in
the test description:

  # tool is what to use instead of 'curl'
    http://anything:560/ %HOSTIP:%HTTPPORT

the test case constructs this request header (for the proxy) from this:

  CONNECT anything:560 HTTP/1.0
  Host: anything:560
  Proxy-Connection: Keep-Alive

Note that there's no proxy-credentials included (since I want to test
the 407 response here). So the proxy should respond with a 407.
Instead, I get this response:

  HTTP/1.1 200 OK
  Content-Length: 17

Yeah, at the time I started creating the test case, 560 was not existing.
I will keep updating, of course.
