I don't think this is something we should fix in the josm wrapper script
because this problem affects every java application that somehow tries
to access the network.
But openjdk-6 allows to define system-wide proxy settings 
in /etc/java6-openjdk/net.properties. There's also a property 
java.net.useSystemProxies which i was told works with the gnome proxy 
settings but unfortunately not with $http_proxy.
We can probably improve the josm wrapper to use the environment
variable $JAVA_OPTS to customize the behaviour of the jvm, like 
defining proxy or memory settings.
