sorry for the delay, now I finally got to test it. I think that something
went wrong in handling of environment variables along with the push of

After each test-case the variables set in <setenv> should be thrown away, even
if the test is skipped. However there seems to be an interference on
$http_proxy among test63 and test67. If test63 is skipped, the http_proxy
variable from there is taken by test67 and causes it to fail unintentionally.
The problem can be repeated by:

./ 'HTTP NTLM auth'

The other problem could be, that the NTLM tests override any LD_PRELOAD
variable given by user. The best would be to do something like:
