no it doesn't. However the trouble is more complex :
1) if you do this in a terminal
# export http_proxy=http://proxy:8080
pup will work fine
2) if you edit yum.conf and add the line proxy=http://proxy:8080
-pup fails to retrieve informations when launched from the gnome-applications menu
-pup works when started in a console
First dialog box show "R" in French is "Corrected and uploaded to CVS"

Tryed, Yum now works !
Even doing 'sudo yum upgrade' in a terminal is okay.
However Pup is still not happy : "Unable to retrieve update information"
Aha, I see what's going on. Marking a dupe of the main bug I'm going to use for
