New submission from zhaoqifa:
urllib2.open failed to access a url when a perent directory of the url is permission denied.
I had a file in a ftp, the address is like ftp://host/home/work/123.txt which can be access by wget.
When I urllib2.open to access the file, it always tell me that:
urllib2.URLError: <urlopen error ftp error: 550 home: No such file or directory>
I found that the path /home is denied for anonymouse access but the path /home/work is not.
urllib2.open try to call ftp.cwd("home") and then ftp.cwd("work") which failed when ftp.cwd("home").
I tried to fix this by changing "for dir in self.dirs: self.ftp.cwd(dir)" to "self.ftp.cwd(os.path.join(*self.dirs)" in urllib.py. And it works fine for this situation.
