Yes you would. Every URI request going through a proxy server looks like
this:  "GET http://www.host.com/blah.html"

So the http:// is part of the URI.

I just spent hours last night retrofitting Bleeding rules so that any
"GET /" or "POST /" matches (which would fail on proxied connections)
would also recognize host names.

I see only two rules in the Snort rule set that might be affected,
sid:306 and sid:1881. The nature of these rules do not warrant a change,
though. They are fine.
