I'm currently seeing a failure in test_ucn:

test test_ucn crashed -- exceptions.UnicodeError: Unicode-Escape decoding
error: Illegal Unicode character

It looks like one of the unicode literals in test_ucn is invalid, but it's
damned hard to pin down which:

Python 2.1a1 (#7, Jan 19 2001, 17:06:32) 
[GCC 2.95.2 20000220 (Debian GNU/Linux)] on linux2
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import test.test_ucn
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
UnicodeError: Unicode-Escape decoding error: Illegal Unicode character
>>> 

I get the same crashes on FreeBSD and (Debian) Linux.
