i've had the same problem and it has only been present since dapper RC-1, and 
doesnt occur when dist-upgrading, the line was changed from

Acquire::::Proxy "false";
Acquire::http::Proxy "false";

which worked fine for me connecting to the normal repo's but only gave issues 
when connecting to my apt-proxy server, changing it back works fine just 
disappointing it was changed so late and then wasn't able to be fixed in time 
for the release.
