Python for large projects

I am beginning to work on a fairly large project and I'm considering to use python for most of the coding, but I need to make sure first that it is reliable enough.

I need to make sure that I won't have surprises when my program runs on different real-world systems. So far I wrote a little script with python using urllib, and on one computer it failed completely because of a problem in getting the proxies (in my opinion this is a bug). How likely are such things to happen and how often, and to what extent are they more prevalent in python in comparison to C++?

If python is indeed suitable for large projects, how common is it to actually use if for such purposes? Is there perhaps a list of examples of real projects using python?
