[Tutor] Truncated urlopen

Hi tutors,

aboard again after a long time.
http://..._export.php?mehet=1 is a link which exports me some data in CSV
correctly when I click on it in my browser. (It contains personal data,
that's why I dotted.) I want to process it directly from Python, excluding
the browser phase.

The following piece of code in Python 3.3 prints the first n-1 lines
nicely, then the beginning of the last line truncated. I mean there are 12
fields in CSV and in the last line only 1.5 fields of them are displayed. I
suspect some closing/caching error.
In the first times it worked well but after a certain time it spoiled
without PHP code being modified. I guess it may somehow be connected to
quantity of lines.
How could I read the last line?
Thx, Péter

from urllib.request import urlopen

Output looks like this:
