Disabling the AV/firewall did not stop the symptoms when I was investigating originally. In order to get the unmodified test to pass, I had to stop the BFE (base filtering engine), which I think may have been given new rules or behaviours as a result of installing the AV solution ... or maybe it was a Windows upgrade that did it.

I did wonder if this might be a moving target, as the test deliberately includes server abuse, while the products want to stop that.

If I try test_httpservers.py as amended (http://hg.python.org/cpython/file/ffdd2d0b0049/Lib/test/test_httpservers.py) on my machine with CPython 3.4.1, I do not get the error Terry reports. (test_urlquote_decoding_in_cgi_check fails but it should.)
