Good catch!

Seems fixed in r16382.

(unfortunately, we have to whitelist the options that do get forwarded so it is possible I've missed one)

Haven't tested yet, but there are options I didn't find in PROXY_START_OVERRIDABLE_OPTIONS:

key-shortcut, env, desktop-scaling, dpi

Options like key-shortcut, desktop-scaling are only used by the client so they don't need to be forwarded.
dpi: the client will forward it to the server on connection, which is a little bit different admittedly, so r16384 fixes that.
env and start-env added in r16383.

Important fix as part of r16502 (for #1105 mostly): we don't want to honour env when running as root. A user could potentially use this to subvert the system wide proxy service.

Closing, feel free to re-open if I've missed something.
