Since upgrading to Java 7u25, Web Start will do a certificate revocation check at startup. Problem is, it seems to be ignoring the proxy authentication settings (I have it set up to user browser settings; tried switching to manual but there's no way to specify a username and password!) and it's locking my account because it tries to access the proxy without credentials. Even stranger, it seems to pass the revocation check eventually... so it seems it's only ignoring it long enough to fire a few failed login attempts. Any ideas how to get around this?
