First off, it looks like you're using an XferCommand.  pacman 3 has
native proxy support, now, using the fairly standard
ftp_proxy/http_proxy/*_proxy environment variables.  Could you try
with that?  I'd like to pretty much stop people from using an
XferCommand, as it's a little hackish.  Still, I'll look into that
