By default, autopkgtest considers any output on stderr to be a failure,
so warnings will make this test fail, unless it's marked with
Restrictions: allow-stderr.

lighttpd maintainers: please consider whether it should be considered to
be a pass or a fail if this particular test has output on stderr but
exits 0? If it should pass, please add Restrictions: allow-stderr.

(It isn't really clear whether considering stderr to be a failure by
default was a good idea or a design mistake - it depends on the test,
and can be argued both ways. However, it's part of the autopkgtest spec,
so changing it now would be more trouble than it's worth.)
