I can't believe that it's a Windows issue, and neither can I believe
that it's a Python issue (although this is more likely).

Most likely, it's a server issue, i.e. the server somehow closes the
connection without providing all the data it ought to provide. If that's
the issue, Python can do nothing about it - you need to fix the server.
