[New-bugs-announce] [issue13232] Logging: Unicode Error

Thomas Guettler report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Thomas Guettler <guettli at thomas-guettler.de>:

In changeset fe6be0426e0d the format() method was changed. Unfortunately it does not catch all unicode decode errors. 

I think line 482 of logging/__init__.py should be modified:
to this (add 'replace'):

s = s + record.exc_text.decode(sys.getfilesystemencoding(), 'replace')


Here is the stacktrace we get:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/logging/__init__.py", line 838, in emit
