New submission from Raphaël Droz <raphael.droz+floss at gmail.com>:

Accentuated characters are not accepted in password.
While it (unicode) was quickly talked about in issue557704 it appears that issue1170 aimed to solve this by making shlex unicode-compatible but it does not seem to be the case (at least with python 3.2 in the netrc use-case).

On a side note :
- a blank line between two comment lines
- lines starting with a '#' *not* followed by a space
 fail too (shells supports both of them)
