1.117.1. RHBA-2011:0038: bug fix update

An updated python-urlgrabber package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The python-urlgrabber is a high-level cross-protocol url-grabber for python supporting HTTP, FTP and file locations. Features include keepalive, byte ranges, throttling, authentication, proxies and more.
This updated package provides fixes for the following bugs:
* previously, messages were truncated when downloading packages. As a result, the lines were truncated so they didn't show the names of the packages that were being downloaded. With this update, the complete package information is printed when packages are being downloaded and this issue is resolved. ( BZ#500912)
* previously, the python-urlgrabber could not handle the character '@' or '%40' as login in username or password when authenticating. With this update, the information for username and password is encoded correctly, username and password fields are unquoted after splitting from the host portion, and this issue is resolved. ( BZ#576651)
All python-urlgrabber users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
