Bug Description

When I try to assign a bug that the summary field contains non-ascci chars (like this one: https://bugs.launchpad.net/evaristo/+bug/438173) I got a popup box saying "Internal Server Error UnicodeDecodeError" and the bug stays unassigned.

As seen on OOPS-1389F1185:
  UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xe2 in position 33: ordinal not in range(128)
In this case, the bug title (bug 455896) is in Cyrillic.

I got also the same error, when I tried to assign https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/455396 to me.

I've got a fix for the bug in lazr.restful. Unfortunately, with that fix in place a similar bug appears in the zope template interpreter.

Changed in lazr.restful:
status: New → In Progress
importance: Undecided → High
assignee: nobody → Tom Berger (intellectronica)

False alarm. Turns out this additional bug is also in lazr.restful and easy to fix.

Fixed in lazr.restful r88. To get the fix in Launchpad we need to release an egg and incorporate it into the Launchpad release.
