pacman and proxy authentication


have arch 0.7 installed at work, behind a firewall and need to use a proxy server to get out to do any updates. i have edited my pacman.conf file as shown
Code:
ProxyServer = http://username:_password@proxy.company.com:8080
when i do a pacman --synch --refresh, it gives a segmentation fault and i have to delete a lck file which i can and if i put in
Code:
ProxyServer = 1.2.3.4:8080
it says Proxy Authentication Required

anyone know how to get pacman to work behind a proxy that requires a login?

thanks
