CNTLM is running on my local machine using port 3128. It's configured 
with my domain username and password for our corporate network and it 
works perfectly for my web browser and other applications accessing 
https URLs.

Here is what I see in CNTLM's log output for the above:


And this is what I see when loading "" in my web 
browser through CNTLM:


Notice that the browser explicitly uses port 443 in its CONNECT request 
for the https URL.

I've tried two different proxies with the same or similar result. I 
doubt that they both have exactly the same bug.

How is the proxy supposed to know what port to connect to if you don't 
tell it?

I was working under the assumption that the _urllib_wrappers stuff is 
supposed to be generic. It can't assume what port to use unless none is 
specified in the original URL.
