[RC5] Possible HTTP proxy problem with new Win32 pproxy (276)

I see they coders have put some HTTP modifications into the latest
pproxies (Win32 build 276 at least) to work around some problems
with the Netscape web proxy (which I am forced to go through).  I am
getting farther than I used to, but still no key exchange.  Anybody
else get this:

As you can see, my pproxy is connecting to a keyserver (through my
firewall/HTTP proxy -- hence the address), but no
keys are exchanged.  Has anybody else seen this or have suggestions?
 And before everybody jumps in with the obvious; YES, I've tried
putting in specific IP addresses for the keyserver and it doesn't
make any difference.
