New submission from John Robinson <greywine at gmail.com>:

When using the socket module and performing a socket.send('hello
world'), the error returned is:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Python30\testclient.py", line 12, in <module>
    s.send('Hello world')               # send the data
TypeError: send() argument 1 must be string or buffer, not str

TypeError should refer to byte not string.
