Correct.  I fixed this in the CVS version earlier this year.  Since the
proxy data is coming from the local environment, I don't see a need to
roll out an update to 2.6.0 (which is the latest released version, BTW).
The fix will be in 2.6.1, which should be released in the next month or

Thanks for the report,
