New submission from Manuel Muradás <mmuradas at dieresys.com.ar>:

We've found an error in an urllib2 example with Proxy Basic
authentication. This is the example with the error:
This example replaces the default ProxyHandler with one that uses
programmatically-supplied proxy URLs, and adds proxy authorization

proxy_auth_handler = urllib2.HTTPBasicAuthHandler()

Attached you will find a patch with the fix.
