Thanks for getting back to me, Quentin.

Yeah, I thought that, it may be tricky to debug. This has persisted
across the many versions of webkit2 I've used (compiling from
source). I'm pretty sure it also happened with webkit1, but I
haven't used that for ages.

That's correct, so not a particularly useful datapoint.

I just tried with uzbl (after working around a page load bug - it's not very maintained
these days, by the looks of it). It has exactly the same issue,

I also had a binary of Google Chrome lying around, which did work
fine with the proxy. But obviously that isn't going to be using
regular webkit2.

Just in case, I modified my config.h to turn on everything in
defconfig, and the issue remained. I'll have a look in the webkit
tracker, and see what I can find...
