Summary: fix for 1016880 urllib.urlretrieve silently truncates dwnld

Initial Comment:
The patch makes urllib.urlretrieve raise an IOError if
the actual download size is different from the expected
size (taken from the content-length header).

NOTE:
urllib.patch2 may be a bit better. It fixes a misspelling,
and also is more relaxed about a 'wrong' download size.
To be more precise: it treats content-length as a lower
bound (just like wget and firefox appear to do). So if
there's more data to read, it  reads more data, but if less
data is available, it gives an IOError
