Hi, I'm writing a download manager in python, and httplib is being
very slow when pulling from localhost or even other servers on the
local network. I'm getting about 10MB in 14s with httplib, while wget
hits 80MB in less than 3s. You can find the code I made to benchmark
this here: (noslor is mapped to my IP in /

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this, and how I can
fix it? I'm using python2.5 under Ubuntu Linux 8.04 with apache2 for
the webserver.

Thanks in advance.
