The error in mechanize comes from the following:

        ct = self._response.info().getheaders("content-type")
	return ct and ct[0].startswith("text/html")

If you use

> debug http 1

you'll be able to see if the content-type header is correctly set... It
may be that the server is only sometimes setting the header properly.
