This is the error I get when deleting a user. This happens because some of the data tied to the user account that should be displayed on the confirmation page cannot be templated as ascii (it's unicode).

Please post a full traceback when opening problems like this. In general the admin has no difficulty with non-ASCII data in models, so I suspect the problem here is your model does not have a correct __unicode__ method. If you are sure that the error is not due to that, reopen with full details on your model and the traceback you are getting. Without that it's impossible to debug the problem.
