session should set proxy information in environment

gnome-session should probably set HTTP_PROXY, etc if you set up a network proxy
in control-center so that non-GNOME apps have a chance of working.

gnome-terminal already does this - see:
agreed, though, that this should probably be in gnome-session. I've re-opened
the upstream bug:
what apps depend on http_proxy (that aren't run from terminal) ?
We should just go with whatever upstream does I think.
I really think we need to do this, even if it's adding a patch ourselves. Right
now, it's extremely non-obvious how to do any sort of proxy setting for a) any
non-GNOME app b) any app not running as the user (eg, pup/pirut).
And I really don't think that "add proxy config to pup/pirut" is the right

Ohh, this is for pirut! Okay. It would be better, long term, if pirut dropped
privileges and used gconf itself, I think, but I realize that has its own
Should be fixed in the next compose. Reopen, if not. I haven't really tested
it, so there might be issues.
It also works if the automatic configuration option is selected?
