One difference between the two is that www.microsoft.com actually has
an HTTP redirect involved, while the failing version does not.

Here's a simpler way to reproduce the problem:

import httplib
h = httplib.HTTP('www.google.com')
h.putrequest('GET', '/')
a, b, c = h.getreply()
fp = h.getfile()

This fails with the same "disposed object" error, but replacing google
with microsoft makes it work correctly.  Any "business/political"
implications thereof are left as an exercise to the reader ;).
