installer asks for a proxy even without configured network

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Even if I install without any network, the installer asks for a proxy. This didn't happen in Breezy.

(Please close the bug if it is intentional.)

  * Don't ask for a proxy if networking is disabled by telling netcfg "Do
    not configure the network at this time" (closes: Malone #29839). This is
    a very ugly way to figure this out, but unfortunately nothing else seems
    to be reliable enough. Ideally, netcfg would write out a piece of
    explicit state somewhere to let us know whether a network is available.
