 Bug still there.
 The reason is the function wp_http_validate_url in http.php.
 There is a gethostbyname()-function which do not work behind a proxy,
 because the proxy does the dns-lookup.
 If i add in /etc/hosts a entry like
 --- downloads.wordpress.org
 the update/installation works.
 Could you fix this in a further version?
