Description of problem:
On FC4 test 3 yum crashes when going thru the list of mirrors looking for an alternate site to download from. It looks like an error in /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/urlgrabber/mirror.py.
It says "IndexError: list index out of range" and then stops. I have not changed yums config file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Simply run yum update. it occurs when a file tries to find another mirror.
Actual Results: yum runs a trace back to mirror.py, and crashes with a "IndexError: list index out of range" error
it does not appear to effect the performance of the system so it not severe, but highly annoying.
