Yes, there was a bug report in SF and I believe I fixed it. See

There may be chance that a user input his password in a different
language so passwords should be once transformed unicode. Last code in
2.1.5 failed to reverse encode into list language. May be we should
restrict passwords within ascii 7bit characters. ([\x21-\x7f])
Thanks anyway for your comment. I have just fixed a last (hopefully)
small bug to 'replace' alien charcters. Hope you can check out the
latest CVS and try if the bug went away.
