Default ebay app 2.1.0.7: why does it talk to webtrends.com ?

Please Login to Remove!

I recently updated to this from an older version.
During the start, i was several time presented, that an ssl cert for dc.webtrends.com does not match.
This occurs because *.webtrends.com is blacklisted in my domain. All traffic for blacklisted domains is sent to my proxy. Therefore the certificate mismatch. This is normal.

What I dont understand:
Why on earth is this application talking to webtrends anyway - it is an ebay app. It should talk to ebay, not, webtrends. The old application did not behave this way.

In addition, the blackberry built in permissions management cannot be used to identify/block unwanted traffic for this kind of app, because the ebay app is not "third party" but an "addon" and therefore trusted.

Is there a way to edit the permissions for "addon" applications ?
Until this i did trust RIM, but now I start to think different.
