I am not aware of any issues in the latest version of tsNet with regards to proxy servers, however there were some fixes for proxy NTLM authentication addressed in tsNet 1.2.10.
Without knowing the specifics of the networks your application is being used in, I cannot say if that would address the issue your customers are experiencing. I would recommend trying the latest version of LC and seeing if that resolves their issues.
You could also try get a copy of the output of the debug output from tsNet (see the tsNetSetDebugCallback command) from your application in one of these environments - it may assist in finding out what the actual issue is.
