Hmmm, looks like the spider is not programmed to get the credentials
from the credential store when authentication is needed.
If your proxy is performing Basic Auth, you should be able to work
around it by providing a suitable header using the Headers button on the
Spider page. i.e. Copy and paste the Proxy-Authenticate: Basic xxx
header from a proxied conversation.
Let me know if that works for you.
