MonoDevelop uses the Mono proxy settings. These can be set in the
relevant .config file (/etc/mono/2.0/machine.config, or
per-application in the appname.exe.config):

Note that the default setting (i.e. when no explicit setting is
present) is autoDetect=true, which uses http_proxy. However, it does
not have support for detecting the settings for proxies that require
authentication. Maybe that's your problem?
