Bug Description

Binary package hint: seahorse

seahorse can't access key servers over HTTP (hkp://) when only SOCKS proxy is configured in gnome-network-properties.
I have no means to try with an HTTP proxy configured.

Error message (for each hkp:// key server with respective change host:port) is as follows:
"Couldn't communicate with server '': Cannot resolve proxy hostname"

This does _not_ happen for LDAP key servers (ldap://).

I have System -> Preferences -> Network Proxy in Gnome ('gnome-network-properties') configured to:
(*) Manual proxy configuration
Socks host:
Port: 1080

"Use the same proxy for all protocols" is _unchecked_.
Other proxy addresses are blank with "Port: 0" (blank turns to zero).
