20.9 Use "random" ports for the test servers

Instead of insisting and using fixed port numbers for the tests (even though
they can be changed with a switch), consider letting each server pick a
random available one at start-up, store that info in a file and let the test
suite use that.

We could then remove the "check that it is our server that's running"-check
and we would immediately detect when we write tests wrongly to use hard-coded
port numbers.
