New submission from Matthias Klose <doko at debian.org>:

[forwarded from https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/python2.7/+bug/971311]

The webbrowser.py is using gnome-open. This is no longer supported by gnome, instead they use gvfs-open. The attached patch adds support for this and will also use xdg-open if available as this is meant to be the 
cross desktop tool to use for this kind of task, see http://portland.freedesktop.org/wiki/
