Midori 0.1.1 a certain improvement from previous builds (UI and
functionality), but I had mixed experience with it. Version <=0.1.0
for some reason (perhaps webkit-gtk upgrade) refused to initialise; on
start-up they failed with:
>midori  (16728)

GLib-ERROR **: The thread system is not yet initialized.
>midori (16728) returned '6'

These versions worked fine with the exported proxy variables, that is
when they initialised (some time ago) I could access the Net through a
proxy server. With version 0.1.1, however, Midori seems unable to get
on-line via the proxy server. It initialises properly, and behaves
quite well when browsing with non-proxy Internet connections, but it
seems unable to pass through a proxy. I am not sure whether it makes
any difference to the current code that I have WebKit built with the
libSoup backend.
