New submission from Taylor Marks:

The following code causes Python 2.7.8 to lockup for ten minutes, then crash, 
in both Windows 7 and OS X:

from urllib import urlretrieve

Here's a thread on StackOverflow where I originally posted about this bug, 
assuming it was an issue in my code, before other people let me know that the 
problem wasn't my code, but with Python 2.7.8, on both Windows 7 and OS X, and 
that in older versions of Python, such as 2.7.6, the code works fine.
