stem: test_with_ephemeral_hidden_services_basic_auth failing

#29669 was merged to tor.git master yesterday and so this test now is failing.

Reason is that now ADD_ONION NEW:BEST defaults to v3 and the test seems to use client authorization v2 with it:

ADD_ONION response didn't have an OK status: ClientAuth not supported

It probably could be that stem needs to change things within the API call: create_ephemeral_hidden_service() with regards to its basic_auth parameter?

Hi David. Here's the request/reply being issued by the test...

10/08/2019 14:01:57 [TRACE] Sent to tor: ADD_ONION NEW:BEST Flags=BasicAuth Port=4567 ClientAuth=bob ClientAuth=alice:nKwfvVPmTNr2k2pG0pzV4g
10/08/2019 14:01:57 [TRACE] Received from tor: 513 ClientAuth not supported

ClientAuth is part of the control specification...


Did we break backward compatibility? And is this ADD_ONION change violating tor's spec? I'd be happy to adjust the test but on first glance this looks like a legitimate test failure that should make us rethink the tor commit.
