[ubuntu-uk] Broken Synaptic

Does anyone have any ideas why Synaptic and add/remove programs would
both be insisting on using a proxy that is no longer configured? I've
not only disabled, but removed the configuration information for the
proxy in Synaptic. I've checked that there is no /etc/apt/apt.conf proxy
information (in fact Synaptic seems to have deleted it). Sadly using
aptitude on the command line was also insisting on using a proxy until I
rebooted! I can now upgrade things, but not through Synaptic. That's
fine by me in terms of being able to use things, but wouldn't be so good
for a normal end user, and does leave me wondering what else may be
