Can't add accented characters

Reported by: emonesi Owned by: osimons
Priority: high Component: CustomFieldAdminPlugin
Severity: critical Keywords: ASCII accented chars characters portuguese pt-br
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


When I tried to add accented characters (like á, ã, é, etc), in Options for Radio or Select field, Trac thrown the message below:

Trac detected an internal error:

UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 79: ordinal not in range(128)

It's a great plugin that helped us. This bug is minor for while. :)

  • After this error message, Trac asked me to upgrade the environment
Trac Error

TracError: The Trac Environment needs to be upgraded.

Run "trac-admin c:/trac/myenv upgrade"

Oh. Not good at all. I can recreate the issue at my end.

The upgrade problem is that Trac writes the whole config file to disk, and when it hits the problem field it just stops. So all later settings will be lost... - including [ticket-custom] and so on...

I'll look into it.

Really, after Trac upgrade, I lost the workflow configuration backing to version 0.10 workflow that doesn't have "accepted" state. Curiously, Trac put a message like "reset from invalid state" on ticket action, because was expected a "accepted" state.

My backup routine saved me today and I restored trac.ini from it. So, We always must have a test environment !

Thanks in advance and I'll wait for news.
