I encounter an Unhandled exception when I try to upload a file with accentuated characters in the filename.

This occur when I upload something in a FileField or ImageField, via the admin site.

There is no problem when I am using the django development server, but with Apache I have an UnicodeEncodeError.

Here is the traceback :

First "/home/bioconvergence/bioconvergence/ficheEntreprise/" is definitly not Django code.

Second, the "name" argument is unicode, so Django done it's part. Python will handle unicode file names on your filesystem, only if the your OS settings support it. Also see:
