I tracked down the exact cause of the refleak in test_urllib2_localnet.
 Turns out the DigestAuthHandler adds a nonce to its internal _nonces
list every time _return_auth_challenge is called, but not all of these
nonces are removed from the list.

Not sure what the cleanest fix would be.  I'm not that familiar with
auth protocols; I'm guessing a real auth server would time out stale
nonces.  One question I have is if the tests are expecting that the
nonce will get deleted, and thus there is a real bug here...but I
suspect not.


   FakeProxyHandler.digest_auth_handler._nonces = []

to the tearDown for ProxyAuthTests fixes the leak.  Is this acceptable,
or does this merit further investigation?

I've posted a patch in issue 6032 (didn't see this one); I'd be
interested in any comments on the approach taken there.
