Bug Description

Binary package hint: bug-buddy

What happens: When I try to send a bug report with bug-buddy, I obtain the following message:

There has been a network error while sending the report. Do you want to save this report and send it later?
Please ensure that your Internet connection is active and working correctly.

What I expect to happen: The report should be sent.

What I think is going on: my proxy settings are not being observed. The environment variable http_proxy is set in the shell I run bug-buddy from, and I have "manual proxy configuration" settings under System->Preferences->Network Proxy.

$ lsb_release -rd; apt-cache policy bug-buddy
