The proxy does indeed seem to be taken from GConf through other means
in gecko 1.9 (nsUnixSystemProxySettings.cpp), so the patch looks ok to
me. If you can confirm that with a non-suse xulrunner (e.g. ubuntu's),
it's ok to commit the patch with a checkin comment explaining the

I'm rather unsatisfied with the cited bug report though; there's no
explanation at all how setting a pref in one xulrunner-using
application with its own profile could affect the running instance of
firefox et al.

As near as I could find, this is caused by a non-standard
patch in suse's xulrunner package (mozilla-nss-shared-db.patch), but
even then this should only affect the NSS db, not the cookies db. Also
there's no explanation _how_ setting this specific pref causes the bug.
