Proxy settings are not used in incognito mode. I noticed this by using privoxy web configuration http://config.privoxy.org
That's right! Unfortunately to have a working incognito mode, we need to use Qt classes instead of KIO. This loose kde magic facilities to set proxy, manage cookies and network cache.
Cookies and cache are not a problem because they are something we don't want to mix or take care in incognito mode.
Proxy support has to be implemented. (or kio needs improvements to right support incognito mode, allowing all its free magic).
Ok, KIO support for incognito mode would be the best solution. I have made a request for it https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=316006

Link custom rekonq QNAM to KDE proxy settings
This is a first attempt to link our needed QNAM to KDE proxy settings.
It will try to fix proxy problems when used.
Oh... I also added some new error strings in case of proxy problems :)
