I now there is some problems with proxys, it look like the proxy settings in
yum.conf dont work from yumex, i dont no why.
I cant test it because dont have access to a system behind a proxy firewall.

I have descripted a work around here:

Until i find a good solution.

I have added a proxy feature to the current CVS release, it will be included in
the next public release.
