[Python-Dev] Bug in stringobject?

In string_replace, there is

	if (PyString_Check(from)) {
	  /* Can this be made a '!check' after the Unicode check? */
	if (PyUnicode_Check(from))
		return PyUnicode_Replace((PyObject *)self,
					 from, to, count);
	else if (PyObject_AsCharBuffer(from, &tmp_s, &tmp_len))
		return NULL;

[the same check with "to"]

	return (PyObject *)replace((PyStringObject *) self,
				   (PyStringObject *) from,
				   (PyStringObject *) to, count);

Can this be correct if from or to isn't a string object, but a
char buffer compatible object?
