yes. I've had lots of reports about this problem. The proxy does not work well under Win32. One workaround is to set maxchild to 0. -- Philippe "BooK" Bruhat Only a fool follows orders without knowing why. (Moral from Groo The Wanderer #86 (Epic))

Well, I've seen that you've skipped some of those offending tests under Windows, but it seems that there are still some leftovers. At the time of this writing (HTTP::Proxy v. 0.17) the still not-skipped tests which hang under Windows are the following: 22http.t 23connect.t 90diveintomark.t while all the others work OK or are properly skipped (in general, any test using fork hangs). Other than this, this module is a real gem: thanks for it! Ciao, Emanuele.
