This week authentication was changed to be required for our proxy server and 
post-review stopped working. This seems to be caused by two factors:

1. It doesn't handle proxy authentication.
2. Proxy exceptions aren't honored so the proxy isn't skipped as it should.

I did find an older message about this topic where the poster worked around 
the issue with a script that wrapped post-review and disabled/enabled the IE 
proxy, but I didn't quite like that solution.

After reading some post-review and urllib source I found a new workaround. 
Add the lines below to .reviewboardrc (which I found to be executable to my 

import os
os.environ["no_proxy"] = "*"

Hope that helps someone.
