actaully I found a hanging slave ...
but I remember I hit this problem before, but had killed the processes
without looking into details that time

that may be just some network glitch ... and I should really point
master and slave and report to my local squid, not only piuparts
(local mirror on a local but different machine was easily saturating the
local 100 MBit link with multiple slaves ... and with backports,
archive, ... a local mirror was not sufficient any more, so I switched
to squid on localhost)

which means, we should have a proxy = ... config setting :-)
