Bug Description

I configured Network Proxy Preferences (gnome-control-center: /usr/bin/gnome-network-properties) with my proxy data and auth login/pass but echo $http_proxy is not well exported. It contains only http://url:port and not the wished http://login:pass@url:port

BTW correct info are visualized via gconf-editor, meaning correct info are stored somewhere.
