As far as I can tell, this doesn't work properly:

quickstep: ~> billard -fTest -FTest.fed -n1
CERTI Billard 3.3.3cvs
with TIMESTAMP. If you want without TIMESTAMP add -e option.
RTIA:: RTIA has thrown NetworkError exception.
RTIA:: Reason: gethostbyname gave NULL answer for hostname <None> with error 
<Unknown error: 0>
RTIA:: End execution.
libRTI: exception: NetworkError (read)

....  while:

quickstep: ~> unsetenv http_proxy
quickstep: ~> billard -fTest -FTest.fed -n1

works nicely (note that $CERTI_HTTP_PROXY has to be unset as well).

 Unix _IS_ user friendly - it's just selective about who its friends are !
