That's not the same thing as working correctly through a proxy. There
are all sorts of reasons to use proxies, some involving firewalled or
unrouted networks where the client can't directly access the real
server. The real problem is that the path on the real host leaks
back to the client which should only know about the path mapped in the
proxy. If this can't be fixed, it should at least be documented that
it won't work unless the paths match.
