File transfer and buddy icon upload/download (Yahoo!) don't work behind a
squid proxy server.
Here's the debug message when pidgin attempt to download a buddy icon:

(14:58:33) util: Request: 'GET
/msgr/buddy_name/.friend_icon.png?msIlQRHB7KbknkWi HTTP/1.0

I'm not sure if this is a bug or the proxy server's settings problem.
