Disable online check with DNS query

When try to use icedtea-web behind my corporate proxy I get the following
java version "1.6.0_24"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.11.3) (6b24-1.11.3-2)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.0-b12, mixed mode)
File cannot be launched because offline-allowed tag not specified and system
currently offline.

Looking at
I can see that icedtea-web assume that "no name resolution" mean "offline".
It's wrong when using a proxy.

The attached patch is a workaround which work for me. If it's really necessary
to check for "onlineness" so early I guess it would be better to do something
like "if not offlineAllowed and noDNS and noProxy then ...".
