Good! The more eyes we get on the source, the less bugs we will have left!

You need to give us a lot more details. I'm not aware of any problems with
getting HTTP over proxies. Set VERBOSE to 1 and include a protocol dump when
you report things like this. Also, I hope you're referring to libcurl 7.9.1,
as otherwise I'd advice you to upgrade before persuing.

How doesn't it work? Again, provide protocol dumps and if possible, point out
the problem. What did you expect to happen and what did happen?

Of course there may be bugs in libcurl, but I won't even get suspicious about
that until I get a lot more info about your failures.

Also, can you run the test suite? (it requires a unix-like environment) If
so, does it run successful?
