Setting a web proxy in the preferences dialog

I'm new to Revolution, though I've been watching the mailing list for 
a while, and trying to save all the useful snippets. I'm finally 
trying to build my first (small) cross platform application, but my 
iMac is behind a web proxy, and I cannot get those details to be 
retained in the preferences dialog in Rev. I can enter the proxy 
details but they're not there when I reopen the dialog, and so the 
distribution builder fails to download the windows engine - I suspect 
because it doesn't know about the proxy! This is under OSX 10.1.4. Is 
there something I'm missing, or is this a bug in the preferences? Can 
I download the engines myself?
I've tried resetting the prefs and then re-entering the details but 
it doesn't make any difference.

     Yes, once. But I managed to shake him off near Earl's Court...
