No, I'm not behind a proxy - the server is on the same PC as my client
(while I'm testing!).

I've quickly read about PyCurl, but it only seems to allow HTTP HEAD,
GET, POST and PUT methods - though please correct me if I'm wrong.

I'd like to use httpLib in Python as I also need the DELETE method and
the possibility of adding some extra headers and extra methods (I'm
working on something like this :
that allows MGET, MPUT, MPOST, etc.).

I've done some more testing and still can't work out why Python
operates differently to other http clients... any ideas?
