Yes - but if that specific proxy is offline, I'm screwed. I thought
the round-robin addresses should be used...

In my case, the problem is not the buff-in size (I have 
two-days-worth of blocks in my buff-in and still the proxy does not 
hand out the blocks) but buff-out (after three hours the buff-out is 
full, proxy starts attempting flushes and stops serving clients.

Where? If you mean in the proxy's ini file, it is a timeout for 
connections, not for DNS queries (correct me if I'm wrong).
