I also see this problem with the FreeBSD version of the proxy (build 308).
It seems that the proxy does DNS lookups even when it is running in
off-line mode (which means no internet name resolution available in my case).
When my ppp connection is up, I use SIGALRM to tell the proxy to connect.
In order to work around the 0.0.0.0 problem, I ended up sending a SIGHUP
first, forcing the proxy to re-read the configuration file seems to fix it
most of the time.
But it shouldn't do any DNS lookups in off-line mode in the first place...
