[Xymon] Proxy HTTPS requests don't use CONNECT

Hi, I am trying to setup some squid proxy checks with Xymon 4.3.17 (or
4.3.28: I have 2 servers in manual failover).
* I added the `--bb-proxy-syntax` flag to the [xymonnet] section of
* I added a line with "   proxy # testip" to hosts.cfg
* I spun up a tcpdump, and I see requests coming as "GET https://github.com/
HTTP/1.1" instead of the expected "CONNECT github.com:443"

The error page states:

> https://www.github.com/ - Not Implemented
If I use "https" as the protocol for the proxy part, I get

> https://github.com/ - SSL error


Unspecified SSL error in SSL_connect to 30755/tcp on host
> error:140770FC:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:unknown protocol
in the log
(of course I cannot read the request through tcpdump)

Is there anything I am missing?

Thank you
