urllib slow on Leopard

I've recently switched from Ubuntu to OS X Leopard. I have some python
scripts which download info from the web. The scripts were working fine
before on Ubuntu, but urllib seems to work really slowly on Leopard.
I tried an example from the docs:
>>> import urllib2
>>> f = urllib2.urlopen('http://www.python.org/')
>>> print f.read(100)
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
The line f = ... takes about a minute to return - but otherwise returns
the predicted result. My web connection seems fine, so has anyone got
any ideas as to what the problem might be?
