(Reply to the list is better :))

IIRC (from the chromium 9 code) it determines your environnement then
it on gnome query gconf, on kde uses a inotify to monitor the kde
configuration directory mecanism (I changed to use kqueue) and uses
the envirnement variable http_proxy.

You can also specify the proxy from the command line: --proxy-server

so if It hasn't changed since the problem for you should be that it
doesn't determine you are on gnome.
