Thanks, but I already had that in gpg.conf and that's why gpg correctly 
uses http_proxy as I stated. The problem is that GPA doesn't seem to be 
using that setting. When I try to send a key to a keyserver with GPA it 
says it's unable to connect to the keyserver -- even though I've set it 
to use the same keyserver I successfully used with plain gpg.

Here's the relevant line in my gpg.conf:

keyserver-options honor-http-proxy broken-http-proxy

Any more ideas?
