Description (last modified by Karen Tracey)

If you have flatpages activated, it will choke on a unicodedecodeerror if the requested url contains a non-ascii character and no trailing slash.

Example url:

This will trigger this message:

Traceback (most recent call last):

 File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/django/core/handlers/", line 92, in get_response
   response = callback(request, *callback_args, **callback_kwargs)

 File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/django/contrib/flatpages/", line 23, in flatpage
   return HttpResponseRedirect("%s/" % request.path)

 File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/django/http/", line 407, in __init__
   self['Location'] = redirect_to

 File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/django/http/", line 320, in __setitem__
   header, value = self._convert_to_ascii(header, value)

 File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/django/http/", line 309, in _convert_to_ascii
   value = value.encode('us-ascii')

UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe5' in position 3: ordinal not in range(128), HTTP response headers must be in US-ASCII format
