gpg --no-options --keyserver hkp://
--keyserver-options debug --keyserver-options
http-proxy="http://<user>:<pass>@<proxy>:8080" --keyserver-options
verbose --keyserver-options verbose --search 0xDEADBEEF

gpg: searching for "0xDEADBEEF" from hkp server
gpgkeys: curl version = GnuPG curl-shim 1.4.6
Port:           80
Command:        SEARCH
gpgkeys: search type is 5, and key is "DEADBEEF"
* HTTP proxy is "http://<user>:<pass>@<proxy>:8080"
gpgkeys: HTTP search error 7: couldn't connect: eof
gpg: key "0xDEADBEEF" not found on keyserver

This is using the released build of 1.4.6 on a W32 system.

        Death to all fanatics!
  Down with categorical imperative!
