When creating a SoapClient object in WSDL mode, PHP attempts to download the WSDL directly from the URL specified, even if a proxy is configured in the second argument.  This is verified by looking at netstat on the machine running PHP, and by monitoring the proxy request log.

If the WSDL is downloaded using some other means and placed in an accessible spot (such as the same directory as the script), and referred to that way, the actual SOAP call is successful.  The SOAP call itself _does_ go through the proxy.

Reproduce code:
$client = new SoapClient(
    array('proxy_host'    => "",
          'proxy_port'    => 8118)


Expected result:
The WSDL file listed should be requested through the proxy, then the web service should be called through the proxy.

Actual result:
Output in web browser and PHP error log:
[16-Jul-2004 09:49:09] PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught SoapFault exception: [WSDL] SOAP-ERROR: Parsing WSDL: Couldn't load from '' in /usr/local/apache2/htdocs/soap/client2.php:6
Stack trace:
#0 {main}
  thrown in /usr/local/apache2/htdocs/soap/client2.php on line 6

In addition, netstat run on the PHP machine shows
tcp        0      1 SYN_SENT
