Trying to solve a python/mechanize "error 500" http error

i'm getting the following error:
mechanize._resp onse.httperror_ seek_wrapper: HTTP Error 500:

i'm running python 5.1
and mechanize 0.1.7b

I have no idea as to what I have to change/modify/include to handle this
issue. The link that I'm testing is at the bottom of the page. When I insert
the link into the browser, I actually get an err page.. so, I suspect that
there is a handler that I should be able to modify/use to handle this
situation...

Thoughts/Comments will be greatly appreciated...

Thanks
the output is:

url2= http://www.quantcast.com/www.1800ink.com/traffic
Traceback (most recent call last):

mechanize._resp onse.httperror_ seek_wrapper: HTTP Error 500:
[root@toshiba adkiller]# ./reseller_scrape _child.py

my code segment looks like:

import mechanize
br = Browser()
user_agent = 'Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT)'
values1 = {'name' : 'Michael Foord',

#br.set_cookiej ar(cj)

br.addheaders = [('User-Agent', 'Firefox')]

url2 ="http://www.quantcast.c om/xxxx/traffic"
#gets the page (url) from the quantcast app
url2=url2.repla ce("xxxx",url)
print "url2=",url 2
br.open(url2)

=============== =============== =========

this works ok for most of the sites.. but something weird is happening with
the actual page:

thanks...

Looking up 500 error (here
http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec10.html)
gives me:

10.5.1 500 Internal Server Error

The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from
fulfilling the request.
On some servers (Amazon), when you get 500 errors you are instructed to try
the request again. I don't know about this server.
