I'm not sure why urllib.parse.urlparse is returning a Bytes result in this case, but the result is the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/opt/python/3.3.5/lib/python3.3/wsgiref/", line 137, in run
    self.result = application(self.environ, self.start_response)
  File "/home/travis/virtualenv/python3.3.5/lib/python3.3/site-packages/django/test/", line 1106, in __call__
    if not self._should_handle(get_path_info(environ)):
  File "/home/travis/virtualenv/python3.3.5/lib/python3.3/site-packages/django/test/", line 1077, in _should_handle
    return path.startswith(self.base_url[2]) and not self.base_url[1]
TypeError: startswith first arg must be str or a tuple of str, not bytes

It's caused by a simple test case:

class RPCClientTest(LiveServerTestCase):

    def setUp(self):
        self.rpc = client.RPCClient(self.live_server_url + '/rpc/')

    def test_echo(self):
        resp = self.rpc.echo(foo='bar')
        self.assertEqual(resp, {'foo': 'bar'})

Where RPCClient uses a requests Session to post to the url.

I've kludged the following patch to make it work:

As can be seen here the error happens on 1.8 to 1.11.2, and py 3.3 - 3.6

Setting STATIC_URL in settings fixed this issue.

Do you plan to investigate further as to whether your patch is a good approach?
