Before you fix this, let's figure out what the rules for proxy
settings in the registry are supposed to be, and document these.
How do these get set?

(This should also be documented for Unix if it isn't already; problems
with configuring proxies are ever-recurring questions it seems.  I
haven't used a proxy in years so I'm not good at fixing it... :-)
