    Description

      Passing the system property -Djava.security.egd=file:///dev/urandom forces the JVM to seed its PRNG from non-true random (/dev/urandom) instead of the true random (/dev/random). This makes the tests run faster, since without it they often hang waiting for entropy while Jetty is initializing.

      We should turn this on for the test targets by default, so developers/hudson boxes don't have to make this change system-wide or use workarounds like rngtools.
