      Description

      The HttpClient throws NullPointerException in the main thread when an invalid port (like 80001) is used in the URL. An IllegalArgumentException is thrown in TimeoutGuard thread.

      It should throw a checked exception in main thread so caller can handle the error condition more gracefully.

      The test program is attached. This is caused by a race condition and it's not always reproducible. Running in debugger shows a different behavior.
