I don't know what effects else the proxy settings on a mac do have, but with
this settings I get with LC thru a proxy with authentication. And LC doesn't
cathches the proxy settings from the machine (at least not on windows), so
you HAVE to set the proxy settings by yourself in LC - as far as I know...
