I am contacting the list in the hope that someone will be able to understand
what I am seeing.
I have hit a bug with python 2.4.2 (on Mandriva 2006) using urllib2.
The code which trigger the bug is as follow..
req = urllib2.Request("http://126.96.36.199/")
# makes no difference ..
handle = urllib2.urlopen(req)
data = handle.read()
using a timeout on the socket does not work neither.
The page is well sent and received (verified with tcpdump) but the read call is
never returning. strace shows lots of activity on the socket: select constantly
returning a file descriptor with nothing to read on.
I would like to avoid to start to use timers to kill the connection manually,
any advise on how to deal with this would be welcome.
Thank you for your time and help.
