[New-bugs-announce] [issue4314] isalpha bug

ZooKeeper report at bugs.python.org
Thu Nov 13 15:39:38 CET 2008

New submission from ZooKeeper <zooregs at mail.ru>:

This may be a little tricky to recreate but here it is:

q = u'абвгде'

foo = u'ч'

So the Russian character u'ч' and u'ё' as well as a bunch of others is
not recognized by isalpha as a alphabetic character, which it is a
matter of fact.
This applies to both capital and regular versions of the letters.
