[Xymon] http test don't care about the authentication

Change to the httpstatus test.


"This is used to explicitly test for certain HTTP statuscodes returned 
when the URL is requested. The okstatusexpr and nokokstatusexpr 
expressions are Perl-compatible regular expressions, e.g. "2..|302" will 
match all OK codes and the redirect (302) status code. If the URL cannot 
be retrieved, the status is "999"."

List '401' as an accepted return code.
If you want to make sure it won't return any data without 
authentication, list all others as unacceptable.

    Do things because you should, not just because you can.
