Bug#286017: webcheck: Nonfunctional with python 2.3.4
Justification: renders package unusable
This package does not function correctly when run under python 2.3.4.
Under 2.2 it works most of the time, under 2.3.4 it fails consistantly.
Below is an example of the failure with debugging turned on (the site used doesn't matter, the same errors are generated).
