+Description of Problem:
+It should be possible to set HttpWebRequest.Proxy explicitly to null
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Compile and run the following:
+using System;
+using System.Net;
+class X{static void Main(){
+HttpWebRequest r = (HttpWebRequest) WebRequest.CreateDefault(new
+r.Proxy = null;
+Actual Results:
+Unhandled Exception: System.ArgumentNullException: Argument cannot be null.
+Parameter name: value
+  at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.set_Proxy (IWebProxy value) [0x00000]
+  at X.Main () [0x00000]
+Expected Results:
+a silent success
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+MS Framework permits such explicit nulling.
