startupHealthcheck doesn't respect SetHttpClient() #225

When using newClient and providing a custom HTTP client, the connection initiated within startupHealthcheck doesn't use the provided HTTP client, instead, a new http.Client is instantiated, thus any provided HTTP connection configuration is neglected.

Offending line appears within client.go:946

start := time.Now()
for {
    cl := &http.Client{Timeout: timeout}
    for _, url := range urls {

The current use case for this is to provide a self provided CA root cert, which is provided to our http.Client. Since the health check does not use this http client, it will fail.

@nickw444 Ah, I see. Sounds like a bug to me. Thanks for reporting. Will take me a few days however; currently on a business trip.
