Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

I use Ubuntu 10.10 Alpha 2 with Turkish locale. When I start software-center, I got this error.

I digged a bit and it looks like the problem is on the python itself.

In our language, we have a unique letter " İ " which stands for uppercase
version of " i "
But in general, especially in english, the uppercase version of i is " I ".

This problem occurs nearly all python based applications such as moovida or
gwibber... I sent some bug reports and developers prefer to "work around"
this issue rather that fixing it.

The issue is in Python itself, and IIRC the investigation I carried out some time ago for the exact same issue in moovida, it's not likely to be fixed until Python 3, which is why developers have to live with it and work around it.
