Exact. it works if no_proxy is not defined.

The bug should be retitled to something like:
"proxy is completely disabled if no_proxy is defined"
"no_proxy environment variable is not correctly honored"

See [1] to know how no_proxy should be used. But I imagine it will be
corrected with the next upstream release.

Maybe upstream author could add in the manpage that $http_proxy is used
when defined.
