I'm sorry, but I don't understand this bug report.

When I run the above code on Windows, both cpython and jython keep the socket connection open.

This could has syntax errors, and tries to call to call the urllib module directly, rather than a function in the module, which breaks with "Module not callable".

Please can you post a running example, which illustrates the behaviour you expect to see? Use a public FTP URL that doesn't need login credentials.

Are you relying on cpython's garbage collection, which is different to jython's, to close the socket for you, perhaps?
