Well, I can't access www.mc.xerox.com; presumably it is Xerox internal
use only.  I was wondering if this machine would be a Windows box by any
chance, possibly running WinProxy?  Your problem looks exactly like one I
had with WinProxy on an NT box.  WinProxy is slightly broken.  The
authors intend to fix it in their next release, but for now you would
need to add a workaround (kindly provided to me by a reader of this
group) to your Python libraries.  Unfortunately I don't have the fix
here, it is on my firewalled machine at work.  You could search for the
fix in this group; just search for WinProxy.

If this isn't your problem, I guess it is something else...

Good luck,
