Hi Bill,

I tried your config and i can recreate your problem. But as Eric just 
said in another mail, your browser is not using https to speak to https 
proxy. And i verified that wget speaks http when you point out the 
"https_proxy" environment variable.

I get the same errors as you mention when i run "lwp-request" with HTTP 
$ lwp-request -m GET -p "http://localhost:8443/"

However, when i explicitly tell "lwp-request" to use HTTPS it works fine!
$ lwp-request -m GET -p "https://localhost:8443/"

So, your config is not at fault really, maybe the implementation is though.
