Thanks for the tip.  I made the change you suggested and even posted this on
the Activestate Python cookbook.  It may not be much, but I thought it was
pretty cool.  Thanks to everyone for their help.  Too bad I can't use this
because the server I'm trying to use this on uses NTLM authentication, hence
Python bombs out on me.  Anyone have an idea how to get around this?
