In my experience (YMMV), IE4's automatic proxy config is badly broken. It
seems to go whacko whenever you start including any function calls. And
sometimes it doesn't. Personally, I use a cgi to deliver the autoproxy file,
and customise it for each subnet, so that it never has anything more complex
than 'return "PROXY first:port; second:port; third:port";' in it.

That seems to make IE4 happy again. If you're not in control of the proxy
script, I'd suggest switching it to a manual configuration and typing the
addresses in.
