That deserves some investigation since this, again, sounds impossible
(how can it possibly know what the user name as, when this piece of is
not being passed the user name). The only possible explanation is that
self.error_msg prints unrelated information; I recommend to remove all
except clauses and let the exception pass through.

Please put a print statement before this socket call, to print all
three arguments.

And put one here, printing socket.error.
