struct.unpack() bug in

Apparently we are passing a bytearray to struct.unpack() and it doesn't like it. I got stuff like:

  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/obfsproxy-0.2.7_dirty-py2.7.egg/obfsproxy/network/", line 319, in processNoAuthRequired
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/obfsproxy-0.2.7_dirty-py2.7.egg/obfsproxy/network/", line 377, in processRequest
    port = msg.get_uint16(True)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/obfsproxy-0.2.7_dirty-py2.7.egg/obfsproxy/network/", line 503, in get_uint16
    ret = struct.unpack("!H", self[0:2])[0]
struct.error: unpack requires a string argument of length 2

I then checked the length of self[0:2] and indeed it was 2. Then I checked it's type and it was a bytearray. I casted the bytearray to a str before passing it to struct.unpack and it seemed to fix the problem.

I'm not sure why we didn't trigger this bug in the past.
The bug is included in the latest obfsproxy-0.2.7 release, I think.

This is dependent on the version of python:

I did all the development with 2.7.6 so I didn't hit it. Casting is the correct thing to do, want me to fix this in a branch?
