Proxy server/firewall problems for plugin manager in recent builds...

I work at a company where we have a Microsoft proxy server. I'm using
build 1171, and although I've configured the plugin manager's proxy
settings (including password authentication) with the same settings I
use for Opera and other non-Microsoft programs, I'm unable to get the
plugin manager to talk to Intellij's server.

I'm getting the following exception:

java.io.IOException: Server returned HTTP response code: 400 for URL:
http://plugins.intellij.net
at sun.net.www.protocol.http.HttpURLConnection.getInputStream
(HttpURLConnection.java:791)
at com.intellij.util.g.c.b(c.java:36)
at com.intellij.ide.plugins.h.run(h.java:13)
at com.intellij.progress.ProgressManager.runProcess
(ProgressManager.java:32)
at com.intellij.openapi.application.a.b$1a_.run(b$1a_.java:11)


This has been happening for a while, but at one time the plugin manager
was able to get through. Now it doesn't.

Anybody else see problems like this? I'd submit a bug, but I'm not at
all sure if the problem lies with our proxy server or Idea.

One of the guys is bringing in a sniffer to monitor the transaction and
to try to figure out who's blocking it.

Any help or ideas on how to troubleshoot this problem would be
apprecieated.
