As for the error:
IDLE 3.0
 >>> def f(a): pass

 >>> f(a=2,a=3)
SyntaxError: keyword argument repeated (<pyshell#2>, line 1)
 >>> f(2,a=3)
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<pyshell#3>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: f() got multiple values for keyword argument 'a'

I therefore suspect that this line
   return self.__r_call(*args, **kw)
gave 'encoding' both positionally in args and nominally in kw.

But then I would expect that to be the end of the traceback.
