For some artifacts Maven ignores the proxy defined in the per user settings.xml and tries to connect directly which results in a connection timeout.
I will attempt to create a simplified test case but meanwhile.
1) install a web proxy
2) install a nexus repo manager
3) configure your machine so it can not see the repo manager.
4) add central and sonatype forge to the repo manager and configre repo manager and settings.xml for proxy and mirror.
5) delete local repository
6) checkout http://svn.sonatype.org/nexus-plugins/trunk/nexus-archetype-plugin/
7) mvn package.
The build will fail.
delete the metadata for the associated failed files in the local repo
run mvn -e package
in another shell run netstat -an
observe that the machine is trying to connect to repository.sonatype.org (184.108.40.206:80)
observe that the stack traces the socket is a plain socket and it is a plain connect not a proxy connect.
