I've just installed fresh Django instance from SVN.

Model is pretty simple:

class City(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(_('City'), max_length=64, )
    slug = models.SlugField(_('Slug'), prepopulate_from =('name',), )
    moderated = models.NullBooleanField('Approved by moderator',)

    def __str__(self):
        return '%s' %
    class Admin:
        list_display = ('name', 'slug', 'moderated',)

While adding this object with name in Russian, I meet an error:

Exception Type: UnicodeEncodeError at /admin/core/city/add/
Exception Value: 'ascii' codec can't encode characters in position 0-4: ordinal not in range(128)

But the object was successfully added - only Log Entry doesn't appear.

Your model should define a unicode method not an str method, please try changing this, for now I will close the ticket, if that doesn't fix it, feel free to reopen.
