The following exception occured when I tried to extract http://
download using the zipfile module on Windows XP.

C:\\HOME\\as\\pypm-infinitude\\scratch\\b\\ is 1) 
current working directory 2) directory where the zip file was stored, 
3) directory where the extraction is to happen.

  File "C:\Python26\lib\", line 935, in extractall
    self.extract(zipinfo, path, pwd)
  File "C:\Python26\lib\", line 923, in extract
    return self._extract_member(member, path, pwd)
  File "C:\Python26\lib\", line 957, in _extract_member
  File "C:\Python26\lib\", line 157, in makedirs
    mkdir(name, mode)
