summary: Proxy crash caused by uninitialised structure members
class: bug: This is clearly an actual problem we want fixed.
difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.
priority: high: This should be fixed in the next release.
present-in: 0.53 0.53b
fixed-in: 2002-10-23 71a97ab286a29626c2c5eeaf512db5556409b6c8 (0.54)

Attempting connection with a proxy could cause a crash due to
uninitialised structure members in proxy data structures.

I (JTN) had only been able to reproduce this with my own local builds
(which use a different compiler / libc to the releases and snapshots).
However, we've had one report of it cropping up with the 0.53b release
on WinXP Pro. There isn't really a workaround other than to use the
snapshots instead.
