I have now installed libproxy-webkit, which seems to do the job:
Well, despite the fact, that proxy still dumps core, when i press ^D
libproxy-mozjs wants to install firefox2, which i was finally glad to get rid
of after all, so thanks, but no thanks :)
Maybe it is interesting, that there has been a change between Gnome 2.26.0 and
Gnome 2.26.1. With 2.26.0 and automatic proxy configuration enabled, the
weather applet was not able to retrieve data at all. With 2.26.1 it was.
Though i could not tell, whether it would have used the proxy, either
voluntarily or involuntarily.
Keep it icy man.
I don't want to end up a corpse before my time because you were daydreaming.
