>From the traceback, it appears that there is a problem with Python's 
_scproxy module; that's an internal helper C module that provides an 
interface to the OS X System Configuration framework to access Internet 
proxy configurations for the urllib module.  You should open an issue 
for this at bugs.python.org.  Please include the original crash report
