Hm, that's what I have and it works for me.  Any version that has -x and
-X as proxy and proxy protocol respectively should work.  You don't have
the original nc somewhere else in the path?

Unfortunately debugging test failures is a pain.  I usually put a "set
-x" at the start of and an "exit 0" in the fail() function,
then you can repeat the last failing command with more -v's.

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
