Bug Description

When python shell invoked via C-c C-c, its stdout encoding is set to None and unicode characters can not be printed. Simple test case (0xA9 should produce unicode symbol (c) ):

1. Invoke python shell manually:
M-x py-shell
>>> print u'\xA9'

2. Create new buffer containing the same print command, switch it to python-mode and use py-execute-buffer:
>>> ## working on region in file /usr/tmp/python-9773IlV.py...

3. And this is how to trigger the error: close python shell opened at step (1) and invoke py-execute-buffer again:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xa9' in position 0: ordinal not in

This test was executed on Linux with Emacs-23.1 and latest python-mode.el. Emacs was running with -nw mode in rxvt-unicode terminal, system-wide LANG is set to ru_RU.UTF-8. On steps (1) and (2) sys.stdout.encoding is UTF-8, on step (3) it is None.
