UnicodeDecodeError in save_add and save_change in ModelAdmin

I experienced a UnicodeDecodeError when I added and changed objects through the admin interface. The problem applied to objects having a unicode(self) function returning strings containing non-ASCII characters.

Django trunk revision 8225
Python version: 2.3.4

I attach a patch the admin_views regression test so that it triggers this bug, and a patch that solves the problem.

#8151 was already opened to fix this and make sure there are no more missing force_unicode wrappers in this code, I've added a pointer to this report/patch there.

(In [8236]) Added a few force_unicode() calls around objects in the admin. Required for
Python 2.3 compatibility. Patch from nfg.

Refs #8151, #8153.
