Bug Description

 I get oopses (like OOPS-341238d9e04d4c5a3c87262ed95d06b1) everytime I try to access the branches on my Launchpad git repositories.
Maybe due to my name having an 'è' - I'll test it after replacing it with an 'e'.

The problem didn't re-occur after setting user.name to 'Laurent Sesques' (without è)

Hi,

I pushed a commit on our firewall repo lp:~canonical-sysadmins/canonical-is-firewalls/+git/firewall-configs:master with "Laurent Sesquès", as I'd forgotten about that.

So, opening our firewall repo in launchpad now OOPSes, which is a bigger pain than OOPSes for a few of my MPs.

Thanks,
Laurent
