If 'auto' is set than it first tries to use the XPI plugin. If it does not find it than the native impl (using .vv file)

Should with both. For XPI we set the ".Proxy" property (with capital "P") and for the native we put
"proxy=..." to the .vv file (with small "p") which is AFAIK correct.
If you are using the native impl could you please verify that the "proxy=..." is indeed present in the .vv file?
