There may be other bugs, but the normal (Apache) web server on the proxy
machine certainly logs a plausible looking proxy style request, on port
80.

(I got put onto the beta program at the very last minute, presumably
because I raised the proxy issue on the Linux versions. I got the
impression that beta 0.50 tried to DNS resolve the main server, even when
configured for proxies. Unfortunately the office now has full external
DNS visibility, so I can't tell if this is still the case.)
