Could still be the proxy server, if all the working repos are
_behind_ the proxy (that is, on the same side as the user), so those
requests don't have to deal with it.

The intermittent part seems odd, though: some proxies reject such
requests, true, but they reject *all* such requests. To make this
intermittent, I'd have to also suppose that there are several proxy
gateways out of the user's network, with different proxy
configurations, and some load-balancing router between the user and
the gateway. Does that sound possible, Steven?
