git clone failing with Failed connect to

On my RHEL box I tried:
git clone
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/vagrant/graphite-web/.git/
and it was hanging and finally giving HTTP timeout error.
I tried then
export http_proxy=http://myuser:mypassword@myproxy:8080
and again
git clone
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/vagrant/graphite-web/.git/
error: Failed connect to; Operation now in progress while accessing

fatal: HTTP request failed

finally I did:
git config --global http.proxy http://myuser:mypassword@myproxy:8080
git clone and I got the magic
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/vagrant/graphite-web/.git/

If you expected such a widely used product like git to give you some hint on how to troubleshoot such a common issue, you are expecting in vain, git is for geeks and geeks are not user friendly.
