Newbie question: Why does read() method of urllib hang?

I can't help feeling I'm doing something stupid. Most of the time:
works fine, but sometimes it just hangs. Is this simply because the remote
server is not responding? I would have thought that would cause
urllib.urlopen() to hang, not u.read().
Or have I made some fundamental mistake in error handling or failing to
clean up, or do I need threads, or...!
Any help greatly appreciated.
