'Safe strings' are not force-escaped on development 500 page

Reported by: elijahr Owned by: elijahr

Severity: Keywords: 500 escape

In the 'Local vars' section of the debugging 500 error page, strings that have been 'marked safe' are not escaped before output, which has often resulted in HTML from my variables being inserted into the page.

While using 'mark_safe' on a string variable indicates that the string should not be escaped further, I think an exception should be made for the debugging 500 page, based on my assumption that most developers would rather see a string's value than the resultant HTML elements.

I have attached a patch that uses 'force_escape' in lieu of 'escape'.
