Same problem still exists. Tested with most current version of the plugin (v1.0.1, r13570) and Trac 1.0 .

To fix it, I had to change in Line 186 in from

user_ldap.simple_bind_s(user_dn, passwd)


user_ldap.simple_bind_s(user_dn, passwd.encode('utf-8'))

Did you also apply the patch in comment:description? Since the plugin is unmaintained I'll commit an untested patch if I get confirmation on the fix.
