 It is fine that Lynx has those features, but we need more than that,
 and that page has no information on the specific subject we are discussing

 Hmmm, it seems this is not really fixable, as the proxy API doesn't
 appear to differentiate between http and https traffic.

+it seams to have differences between unix and .Net.
+Unix uses http_proxy and https_proxy environments variables to set
+proxy, that lets choice in different proxy for each protocol. .Net
+allow one proxy for both.
+For example if http://proxy.com:3128 is set as proxy and you request
+WebRequest send the HttpRequest via Http(80) to the proxy and say in
+request it would like to join(CONNECT) foo.com via https, proxy then
+initiate https connection.
+I think that in your case you have a connection failure because the
+address you specify in http_proxy is not a proxy (or https is not
+allowed ?).
+I do some test with SQUID as proxy and all seams to work fine.
+i hope it's clear :(
