cgmanager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

In setup_proxy, if the proxy fails to connect to the server, it returns success rather than returning an error code and exiting.

Impact: proxy may proceed even though it is not connected
Test case: Start cgmanager on a host; start cgproxy in the guest and immediately kill cgmanager
