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.
