Thanks, Dave,
none of these helps. They are truncated as well.

But I noticed a strange phenomenon. I am supposed to login to this page,
but I can reach CVS data without login if I use the direct link to export.
This may be a bug, but I like it. :-) Now, If I use the same link in
browser, I get different results depending on I have logged in or not. (But
in the first times of gathering data in this table, my Python script worked

So I should try to log in, but I have always difficulties with logging in
from Python. I know http://docs.python.org/3/howto/urllib2.html#id6, but I
couldn't use it in practice.
Another way would be to log in in the browser correctly, then export CVS
and process it with Python after saving, but I am too lazy to repeat this
all the time. :-)
