Here's what's strange... I tried using urllib like this:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
try:
	msparams = urllib.urlencode({'user':
self.components.User.text, 'pass':
self.components.MagnetSharePassword.text, 'sublogin': 1})
	 f = urllib.urlopen("http://www.magnetshare.com/process.php",
msparams)
	fc = f.read()
	fc.close()
	print fc
except:
	self.statusBar.text = "Disconnected"
	result = dialog.alertDialog(self, 'Couldn\'t connect to
MagnetShare.com! Please check your Internet connection, and then try
again.')
else:
	print fc
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
...and then I visited http://www.magnetshare.com/main.php to see if I
was logged in. Sure enough I was logged in, but the exception was
thrown anyway. I commented out the urlopen, f, and fc  lines and
tested it again. This time I made it to "else:"

I'm stumped. I'm glad that the user can log in; however, the
MagnetShare application needs to read in the response from the server,
and then decide what to do with the information.
