That change looks wrong to me. Why would os.walk() need unicode on Python 2? One of the really nice things about Python 2 is that you can do not need to pretend filenames are unicode. I suspect the real problem there is that you are somehow getting a unicode component in a path/dirnames, which you should not do on Python 2.
