Hello:

Consider the following code snippet using mechanize[1]:

   $ cat z_z.py
   from mechanize import Browser
   browser = Browser()
   browser.open("http://localhost/")

It leads to an apparently false positive E1102 report:

   $ pylint -e ./z_z.py
   ************* Module z_z
   E:  3: browser.open is not callable

This is with:

   $ pylint --version
   pylint 0.13.2,
   astng 0.17.0, common 0.21.2
   Python 2.4.4 (#1, Sep  9 2007, 22:46:13)
   [GCC 4.1.2 (Gentoo 4.1.2 p1.0.1)]
