New issue 1955 by speedfirst: post-review can't post when https proxy is setup on MAC OSX

*NOTE: Do not post confidential information in this bug report.*

What version are you running?
RBTools 0.2

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. setup https proxy in the system preference
2. write the domain not applied that proxy
3. in terminal, post-review --target-people xxx -p xxxxx

for example, the reviewboard URL is:;
https proxy is set to:;
set exception for https proxy: localhost,, *
This means when I try to connect, do not use the proxy

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
the review request can be post correctly

501 error
 this is the output of debug mode

Error creating review request: HTTP 501

However, if I disable that https proxy in the system preference, the request is posted correctly.

What operating system are you using? What browser?
Only happens in OSX Snow Leopard 10.6.5
in Ubuntu 8, 10 and RHEL 5, it's OK
