Investigating further, I think the bug is in gnome-session which have
had some changes to set the http_proxy environment variable according to
the gconf settings - this however interferes with gnome-terminal's idea
that if the environment variable is set it should obey this.
The root of the problem is that gnome-session assumes the proxy settings to be constant during the session (because the environment is inherited by child processes, and cannot be changed), which is not true.
Maybe these changes should be backed out of gnome-session, as gnome-terminal already handles it?
