OK ... I think that we have now confirmed that the default yum behavior
is not to enable the proxy information in it's config file until after
it has already obtained the mirror information.

This is a yum design issue and when it enables the proxy information.

We are going to look to see if it is possible to make the mirrorlist
selection happen through the proxy info provided by yum.conf ... in the
meantime, please leave the proxy information in your ENV ... or pass it
in when you issue the yum command.

Thanks for you feedback in helping to make CentOS better.
