I replied on the bug report, but might as well comment here.

The problem with this bug is that BaseException now defines a __unicode__()
method in its PyMethodDef.  That intercepts the unicode() call on the class
and it complains it was not handed an instance.  I guess the only way to fix
this is to toss out the __unicode__() method and change the tp_str function
to return Unicode as needed (unless someone else has a better idea).  Or the
bug can be closed as Won't Fix.
