Bug Description

With a new account in keystone upon the first nova request a 500 is retuned. Account creation through the shim succeeds, but the actual request fails. All subsequent requests are fine.

it seems that in the _build_mc_key method there is a string join, if one of the components is unicode the whole string becomes unicode.
