Bug Description

The following error occurs when attempting to use a fresh checkout with 2.5.1 and Python 2.6.6:

bzr: ERROR: exceptions.ValueError: prompt 'Password: ' not a unicode string

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "bzrlib\commands.pyo", line 920, in exception_to_return_code
  File "bzrlib\commands.pyo", line 1131, in run_bzr

  File "bzrlib\ui\text.pyo", line 323, in prompt
ValueError: prompt 'Password: ' not a unicode string

I have fixed this error by changing line 125 in __init__.py from:

password = ui.ui_factory.get_password('Password')


password = ui.ui_factory.get_password(u'Password')
