[BangPypers] Issue with CherryPy

I am trying to use the CherryPy webserver to serve a simple application on
the localhost.
When I start the sever from command line using:
>>> python my_app.py

I am getting the following error in the browser:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\cherrypy\wsgiserver\__init__.py",
line 983, in communicate
  File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\cherrypy\wsgiserver\__init__.py",
line 304, in parse_request
  File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\cherrypy\wsgiserver\__init__.py",
line 317, in _parse_request
    request_line = self.rfile.readline()
  File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\cherrypy\wsgiserver\__init__.py",
line 212, in readline
    data = self.rfile.readline(256)
  File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\cherrypy\wsgiserver\__init__.py",
line 823, in readline
    nl = data.find('\n', 0, size)
AttributeError: 'cStringIO.StringO' object has no attribute 'find'

However if I start this say file from within the IDE...the application gets
served flawlessly.

Not sure why "data" above is being referred to as a 'cStringIO.StringO'
object...when it actually is a simple "str" object...and hence the 'find'
method is called.

Also, this issue is coming up only on one system. Other systems, things go

has anybody seen anything like this...
