[Reportbug-maint] Bug#682137: reportbug: BTS query does not go through proxy

Package: reportbug
Version: 6.4
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

It appears the reportbug ignores my proxy settings when trying
to query the BTS.  Neither the environment nor .reportbugrc have
any effect.  Therefore, I need to use reportbug -b in order to
file bug reports, and I cannot conveniently check if my bug has
already been reported.  No apologies if this bug is a duplicate!

Older versions of reportbug did not suffer from this problem.
