Bio::DB::GenBank and http proxy ?

I had a script which used Perl and LWP to get sequences by accession
number.  This script has mysteriously started to fail (I get errors like
qmap - need URL-param for request processing), so I tried to get
Bio::DB::GenBank working, hoping to see whether its get_Seq_by_acc
routine would work.

But, the BioPerl modules (or these routines at least) do not seem to
support proxying.  Has anybody been able to get this stuff to work with
through an http proxy ?  Are the changes non-trivial ?

thanks for any pointers,
