Django's ORM doesn't seem to be able to select records by a field w/ special characters in the criteria. For example: it's properly inserted a record who's unicode "name" property has a cedilla, but when looking up the record w/ the same unicode "name" variable it used to insert, the ORM raises DoesNotExist.
Im using MySQL 5 w/ UTF8 tables and unicode collation and Django svn rev. 7826 on OSX Leopard
