This bug was fixed in the package jockey - 0.9.2-0ubuntu2

---------------
jockey (0.9.2-0ubuntu2) natty; urgency=low

  * Merge from trunk:
    - Reintroduce __fix_stdouterr(); we need it for proper -l unicode support.
      However, delay it until after OptParser, as an already encoded
      sys.stderr causes that to crash. (LP: #728744)
