Since the problem is generally the proxy servers on the network test
server, won't this simply
move the problem to other tests that use this service? I've already
sent over to Tony a script
that will allow us to detect when these services are broken before we
actually do the CI run in
order to avoid wasting time on something that will fail down the road
(as agreed at QtCS).
