Bug#358350: konqueror: proxy auto configuration => problem with multiple proxies

Package: konqueror
Version: 4:3.3.2-1sarge1
Severity: normal

We're using the proxy autoconfiguration to have the same proxy config on firefox and konqueror.
We have a primary proxy and a backup proxy. Both are returned by the script.

We're following the documentation at:
which is also referenced in the admin documentation of the kde project.

The Problem is that the first proxy is offlien due to hardware problems and konqueror ignores the second entry. The documentation states that it uses the next entry if the current proxy is dead. Firefox does this. konqueror complains that it's not possible to reach the first proxy and stops.

pac file looks like this:
function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
direct = "DIRECT";
proxy = "PROXY proxy2.math.uni-bonn.de:3128; PROXY proxy3.math.uni-bonn.de:3128;";

if (!(dnsDomainIs(host, ".math.uni-bonn.de") || isPlainHostName(host)))
                return proxy;
        else if (!isInNet(host, "", ""))
                return proxy;
                return direct;

(The proxy=... row is not wrapped in our script!)

There seems to be a wrapper class for the pac stuff
It looks like this class is broken or it's used in a wrong way in konqueror.

We tried to change the name of the first broken proxy to another computer that is turned on but has no squid running (to check if there is a difference between host offline or no port open)
