After update of my django version I'm getting following traceback:

Some bisection on svn revisions also shown that this error has been introduced in revision 12098 and still reproduces in latest 12117. I hope this would help.

This is a bug in your code, smart_unicode doesn't like in django.form.utils, it likes it django.utils.encoding. The fact that it was available at the location is an artifact of Django's use of that, apparently it's no longer used there so the import was removed.

This is an issue in django-tinymce, and it has a ticket and patch here:
