Description of problem:
RPM installer/updater
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/
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):

How reproducible:

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, and crashes with a "IndexError: list index out of range" error

Additional info:

it does not appear to effect the performance of the system so it not severe, but highly annoying.
