Ticket #3270 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Avoid using gconf for getting proxy settings

Description (last modified by alsroot) (diff)
The reason is using only standard way to get information about proxy settings. Also gconf might be fragile (at least for some versions on fc9(11?)) for getting user gconf values from root user.
This implementation reads http_proxy envar from the caller process. That should work fine in Sugar Shell 0.95+ since it exports this envar even if proxy was set in gconf.
