Hi,

I have bug in my code, which results in the same error has this one:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/bzr/+bug/295653
{{{
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/logging/__init__.py", line 765, in emit
    self.stream.write(fs % msg.encode("UTF-8"))
  ..
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xe4 in position 8: ordinal not in range(128)
}}}

I run Python 2.6. In SVN the code is the same (StreamHandler ... def emit...):
http://svn.python.org/view/python/branches/release26-maint/Lib/logging/__init__.py?revision=72507&view=markup

I think msg.encode("UTF-8", 'backslashreplace') would be better here.

What do you think?

Should I fill a bugreport?

  Thomas
