A regular proxy like privoxy works, but not SOCKS. 

The problem with the normal settings is that DNS is resolved localy (where 
they don't work), while anything else is tunneled through the proxy.

This is a problem with TOR, too, which uses a combination of privoxy and SOCKS 
where konqueror leaks DNS to the local network.
