Unblock request for tkabber 0.11.0-2

Two bugs in HTTP proxy code of tkabber [1], a GUI client for XMPP (Jabber) instant messaging protocol, were reported after its latest stable release (0.11.0); unfortunately this happened after Lenny was frozen.

The first of them (#492929) leads to a crash when BASIC authentication is attempted on a HTTP proxy, the second one (#493010) is less severe: proxy settings are "sticky" -- once proxy server was used for connecting this can't be switched off without restarting.

These bugs effectively proxibit usage of tkabber for those who sit behing a HTTP proxy server requiring BASIC authentication, so please unblock 0.11.0-2 from entering Lenny.

Patches ([1] and [2]) for these bugs are rather non-intrusive so it's very unlikely they break anything else.
