As the title says ...
Problem/discussion/patch is here:
change line 43 from :
self.auth = "Basic " + encodeCredentials(login, password)
self.auth = b'Basic ' + encodeCredentials(login, password)
As Python 2 just ignores the b'something' this patch will not cause problems for Python 2 clients.
However, this patch just cures the symptoms for now, maybe the final bugfix is better suited in crypto.py or somewhere else.
