Thanks for the input. I asked for a URL because I thought it unlikely
something common would trigger a bug. After all, urllib.urlopen is probably
one of the most frequently used Internet-related calls in Python.
I can't reproduce this on my Linux system:
Python 2.0b1 (#6, Sep 7 2000, 21:03:08)
[GCC 2.95.3 19991030 (prerelease)] on linux2
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import urllib
>>> f = urllib.urlopen("http://dreamcast.ign.com/review_lists/a.html")
>>> data = f.read()
Perhaps one of the folks on python-dev that run Windows of some flavor can
reproduce the problem. Can you give me a simple session transcript like the
above that fails for you? I will see about adding a test to the urllib
