This behavior resulted from client config settings
2/6/2  auto select key server
2/6/3 host name and
2/6/4 port
were set to connect directly to a key server and not to the proxy.
so the client was looking for the key server for keys, not the proxy
but after it connected to the key server it sent the packets through the proxy
because the proxy settings were set properly
all works well now
