Problem:
Seems harmless right? Well, if someone was to send a request of
"\x1a\x09" or with "\x1a\x09" at the end to a server/client running on
a Python 2.3 platform, it could cause a denial of service.

POC?:
I tested this out by sending "GET \x1a\x09 HTTP/1.0\r\n" to the
BaseHTTPServer included in the python libs directory and it FREAKED at
the GET request and disconnected me. AND, when I tried to end the
server with the interupt key, I had to press it several times for
about two minutes.

(Without a Win32 available for a test)
The -u command line switch should resolve that issue.
