It's using the "internet settings" correctly. A question, though: this output:
Reading available packages...
Warning: The package list for 'hackage.haskell.org' is 16 days old.
Run 'cabal update' to get the latest list of available packages.
selecting binary-0.4.4 (hackage) and discarding binary-0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.4.1,
0.4.2, 0.4.3 and 0.4.3.1
... (blah blah blah(
suggests that it is connecting (succesfully) to hackage to determine
which versions of packages to download. Is that correct? If so, it
seems a bit odd that this connection works, while the later GETs fail
because they try to use the proxy.
