Ok, thanks for trying that out. This is bad news to us then as it seems to be
an actually still existing bug.

Isn't http.proxy saying that the proxy is a HTTP proxy, and that's why it
sends a HTTP CONNECT request to it (that fails) ?

If you start out without git in the mix, can you try using the command line
