Ok I figured out what causes this. It's not a threading issue or 
anything like that, basically what happens is this:

When httplib connects to a server and the hostname is good 
and the port is open and connects, but the server 
immediately disconnects without printing any text or 
anything, this exception is then thrown.

I was able to reproduce it by running netcat -l -p <port> 
locally and starting an HTTPConnection to that port, then 
punting netcat which causes python to throw the exception.
