F11 - Yum Problems after PreUpgrade

Hey everyone,
Having some problems running yum after doing a preupgrade from F10 to Rawhide. Yum worked perfectly in F10, but now reports metalink.xml errors and timeouts depending on the config.

My setup is a local Squid proxy, authenticating to an MS ISA proxy. Squid is working file as I have Firefox and Pidgin running through it as well as a few external machines. Local proxy settings are all pointed to, port 8080, both in the GUI setup and terminal environment variables:

[root@khashoggi ~]# echo $http_proxy
With no changes to the yum.conf file, yum hangs on "Determining fastest mirrors" (I have yum-fastestmirror installed). With "proxy=" in the yum.conf file, I get:

[root@khashoggi ~]# yum update
Loaded plugins: dellsysidplugin2, fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile

Could not parse metalink https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=fedora-11&arch=x86_64 error was 
No repomd file
Error: File /var/cache/yum/fedora/metalink.xml does not exist
Just wondering if it could be a bug with this version of yum and proxying? I can't even do a "yum repolist", as it times out there as well. Here are the repos I have installed:

[root@khashoggi ~]# ls -l /etc/yum.repos.d/*.repo

Apart from that, all working fine
