Description of problem:
Up2date does not use the proxy settings, although rhn-applet does.
Even using `http_proxy=http://proxy:3128/ up2date` will not work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run up2date and setup the proxy (no auth).
2. Wait 3-5 minutes for each screen while up2date tries to connect to
the servers without using the proxy
Actual Results: 3-5 minute timeout wait times between screens, and
up2date is never able to make it through to update the system.
Expected Results: up2date should be able to use the proxy settings,
else why are there proxy settings at all?
