The current urllib's getproxies get the proxy setting from registery 
if they were exist. This by default, make urllib fail to connect to 
the outside world with ms proxy in the middle. After reading the 
urllib's code, the problem seems that current urllib do not implement 
proxies authentation. 

After manually cutting urllib's getproxies from getting the proxy 
info from registry, it is working fine.

Isn't better to modify the 2.0 urllib's behavior to use only 
environment proxy setting on windows 98. I do not known what should 
be apropriate for win nt.
