Showing the status bar message after that NB is freezing


I'm trying to run NB in a corporate environment. If you access a secure internet page, the corporate Security proxy will break the connection to check the downloads and so on. A lots of apps and browsers have also trouble with this silly setup but I'm not able to change this. 

However, editing for example an Java file and invoke the code completion, NB tries to download the JAVA doc from the web. The web proxy behaves in general in one of two cases:

1) it returns a uncripted page (no ssl) or an encrypted page with the wrong certificate (and also a bad one)
2) it returns an error page to the user

I don't not how the system works in the described situation, however in the result: NB is blocking for eternity with showing the Downloading JavaDoc Prompt in the status bar.
