#8018 closed as duplicate.

Non-ascii file names are only one part of the problem. See also #7160.

This still happens in 0.12 svn:

  if f.startswith(d):

d=u'assets/help/' f='v_images/affiliate_0/affiliate_logos/BJ\x92s_Wholesale_Club_logo.gif'

Notice that f is a str. I tried wrapping that and a few other things in to_unicode(), but it ended up being a rat hole. I'm not sure where that wrapping needs to occur, but it appears to be partially applied at the moment.

Same issue here. Putting

import sys

in sitecustomize.py seems to fix it.
