 > the patch worked for me on my pre-2.3 installs, but i can't get it to
 work on my 2.3 install; i'm positive i'm patching the right code, but i
 think there's something else in need of revision in 2.3.
 > any ideas? is the 2.4 milestone definite? i'm pretty surprised this
 isn't more of an issue for folks.

 The 2.4 milestone is suggested not definite - if this issue is not
 resolved when it comes to releasing 2.4 then it will be bumped to 2.5

 I think a better fix to this issue is to move all direct uses of fsockopen
 to a wrapped version which provides the proxy support (and possibly uses
 curl is fsockopen is disabled)

 Then all places where we have duplicated fsockopen code can use this one
