Here is a small patch to fall back to repr() if
str() fails. (force_unicode())

str(exc) fails if the assertion message contains latin1.

I had the same problem with force_unicode() if s contains latin-1 characters, but in a different case. The patch only works for latin-1 systems, so you probably have to find a cleaner solution.

It does absolutely make no sense to use repr() instead of str() if latter fails. Please discuss this in the developers' mailing list if you disagree.
