[Python-Dev] how to debug httplib slowness

Hi All,

I'd like to work on this issue:


Specifically, in my case, while IE can download a 150Mb file from a 
local server in about 3 seconds, httplib takes over 20 minutes!

However, I'm kinda stumped on where to start with debugging the 
difference. I've tried upping the buffer size as suggested in the issue, 
but it's had no effect...

Any ideas?
