Description of problem:
If you set https_proxy=... and do a virt-v2v conversion, you will find
that virt-v2v makes several connections to the server:
(1) Initial connection to port 5480 (via libvirt) does not use the proxy.
(2) When copying the disks, the proxy is used.
virt-v2v should be more consistent in how the proxy is handled, either
ignoring https_proxy all the time or using https_proxy all the time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
virt-v2v 1.33.42 (upstream)
virt-v2v 1.32.5-10.el7 is also affected
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set https_proxy environment variable to point to a proxy server.
2. Run tcpdump -w /tmp/dump &
3. Run virt-v2v -ic vpx:///.. to do a conversion from vCenter
4. Kill tcpdump.
Observe in the tcpdump log that connections are made both directly to the
vCenter server and via the proxy.
One of the other, not both.

I can reproduce the problem with builds:
1.Set https_proxy environment variable to point to a proxy server on virt-v2v conversion server
2.Convert a guest from vmware to rhv by virt-v2v

The v2v conversion only process at 4% of copying after 1 hour, the https proxy env influences the copying of virt-v2v conversion
Try to verify the bug with builds:
The conversion could be finished in 0.5h when converting guest from vmware to rhv after setting https_proxy environment variable, so the https proxy env will not influence virt-v2v conversion now, move the bug from ON_QA to VERIFIED
