When I wrote, that the proxy variables were ignored just my description
was wrong.  May be they are used but they are used in an other way
than if I use settings in /etc/apt/apt.conf.  While trying several different
proxy-settings (sorry, don't remember) there, I got explicitely the
message that the proxy is contacted.  Using just the environment
variables there is no message about contacting the proxy and in fact
the time is always the same when updating package list (also doing this
several times on the same box - at least this could be cached even
without using a proxy - is this worth a wishlist-bug?) or when obtaining
packages.  I really doubt that this is a squid bug because I use it
successfully with wget and lynx.

Kind regards
