It's not a correct fix. The original code seems also wrong ("index" can 
either be Unicode or Bytes/String object), and will probably bomb when 
indexing with Unicode strings on Python 2. The right thing to do is to 
make it show the repr of the "index" object.

The PyString_AsString is present, as it's mapped on Py3 to 
PyBytes_AsString by "npy_3kcompat.h".
