I meant to say "always returns false". KProtocolInfo::proxiedBy(...)
always returns an empty string for FTP. I just looked at the log for
ftp.protocol file and it seems that Andreas had mistakenly removed the
"proxiedBy=" statement from the ftp.protocol file. See

As such the changes the fix I committed current does not fix the
problem. FTP over HTTP proxy still does not work. Anyhow, if the
incorrect commit mentioned above gets reverted, the problem away. Any
objections with me doing that ?
