Hmmm ... the difference seems to be that your proxy doesn't appear to
require a userid or password before allowing access to the internet.
It looks like something goes wrong when ftp has to stop and ask for the
userid/password pair, like it's not correctly sending it on to the proxy.
I'll see if I can do a tcp trace and see what's actually getting sent.
