[Bioperl-l] firewalls, and DB::GenBank, is this actually solved?

A coworker is having a problem using Bio::DB::GenBank. Since the error message
is 'No route to host', the firewall is immediately suspect. He now has the
http_proxy set correctly but the problem persists. When I look at the code this
particular module uses a socket connection, instead of the LWP UserAgent. Am I
correct in assuming that this module does not recognize the http_proxy
environment variable, and that therefore bug 815 is in fact not fixed?
