I've seen this in both Py2.6 on Ubuntu and Py2.7 on OS X

Looks like this may have been fixed in a recent httplib2 update, per http://code.google.com/p/httplib2/issues/detail?id=93. I'm going to leave this open, and re-test it in a week or so. If it's still broken, I'll lock httplib2 to a known-working version for refreshbooks 1.3.1 and possibly 1.4, then go back to "latest and greatest".

If you want to fix this yourself immediately, please downgrade httplib2 to version 0.5.0.


ojacobson commented Jul 25, 2011

Fixed in 0388f38 and released as refreshbooks 1.3.1.

Make that 1.3.2 - 1.3.1 has been removed from PyPI (it contained unintended changes).

This appears to be fixed in the newest version of httplib2. Please see my pull request #10
