Note, while testing this fix, we found that we ran into the similar/duplicate bug 1559019 and bug 1552114.  Those bugs caused our http proxy settings for a "new" (unsaved) provider to be ignored, leading to a 407 "Proxy Authentication Required" error.  Thankfully, David found the above bugs and their fixes and we were able to verify they worked in combination with the changes below.

Therefore, we needed the hotfix for the above bugs in order to test:
1) Jason's original PR on the aws-sdk-ruby gem: https://github.com/aws/aws-sdk-ruby/pull/1760.  This will hopefully be merged and released and be the eventual longterm fix.

2) Until that gem is fixed, released and we can update to it, we'll patching the method via the PR from Nick:
