I attempted to connect to a site using urllib2 and digest authentication and it raised an HTTPError (due to an incorrect username and password, which is expected).  I attempted to run the info() method of the HTTPError to get more information, but it failed with an AttributeError (this is the bug).

$ ./ 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 16, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/", line 987, in info
    return self.headers
AttributeError: 'HTTPError' object has no attribute 'headers'

$ python --version
