Are you positive that you're using the 1.0.4 binary?  The "warning:
unhandled exception" message is printed by asyncore (and nothing else,
AFAIK), but the function that prints it doesn't get called with Python 2.3
(with which 1.0.4 is built).  I can't duplicate this with Python 2.3 no
matter what I do with my network connection.

If you do have time to try and track this down, the best way (especially
since you have Python install already) would be to run from source (with
Python 2.3, ideally) and modify Lib/asyncore.py to stop when the "unhanded
exception" message is printed.  That way we would be able to tell who is
calling the function, and verify that it is asyncore and not a matching
error from somewhere else.
