HttpClient implements only the simplest case: tunneling through one 
proxy only.

http://hc.apache.org/httpcomponents-client/httpclient/xref/org/apache/http/impl/client/DefaultRequestDirector.html#656

In order to support more complex cases such as multiple proxy chaining 
one needs to subclass DefaultRequestDirector and override the 
#createTunnelToProxy method

http://hc.apache.org/httpcomponents-client/httpclient/xref/org/apache/http/impl/client/DefaultRequestDirector.html#793

Hope this helps

Oleg
