great. found the problem. not sure if this solution is correct. but it
seems that socket.ssl expect a socket as the first argument. so instead
of passing in sock (a _socketobject) in line 616 of httplib.py, we
should be passing in sock._sock. after changing that line to:
    ssl = socket.ssl(sock._sock, self.key_file, self.cert_file)
the problem seemed fixed. hope this will be useful to someone else on
the net. thanks.
