Actually, looking at the code, the "--proxy" parameter is only used for
HTTP downloads, so, if the above is true, theoretically everything should
just work for you. Could it be that your manual FTP connections are being
transparently routed through a proxy that you don't know about?

"--ftp-proxy" is not set by default.

Did I understand you correctly that you can in fact connect to
through an interactive FTP session?
