Summary: urllib HTTPS Basic authentication fix

Initial Comment:
urllib's support for HTTP Basic authentication via HTTPS is broken, due to an invalid call in URLopener.open_https() to HTTPConnection.putheader() (apparently miscopied from URLopener.open_http(), which gets it right). the code incorrectly calls putheader with a fully formatted header instead of passing a name and value separately, resulting in a badly formatted header ending with a trailing colon.

the fix is trivial.
