Sorry about the prior long-winded response. I managed to reproduce the
error about five minutes after I responded and managed to trace the problem
back to GenericWebDBI. The issue seems to be with the LWP::UserAgent
env_proxy method not setting correctly post-instantiation; setting to 0 or 1
doesn't seem to do anything. If I add it to the list of args for chained
instantiation in the constructor:
my $self = $class->SUPER::new(@args, env_proxy => 1);
it suddenly works like a charm. Hard to know why it's being fussy...
I'm going to try reproducing this on a few platforms and check to see if it
has been reported as an LWP bug. I have also committed a fix to CVS if you
want to test it out.
