Browse version 120, is unable to handle strange unicode characters in its address bar. It does not crash, but reports unhandled exceptions in its log...
You must not use 8-bit bytestrings unless you use a text_factory that can interpret 8-bit bytestrings (like text_factory = str). It is highly recommended that you instead just switch your application to Unicode strings.
* Open Browse
* Type some obscure characters in the address bad (for example, ctrl+shift+1234) and press enter.
* An exception is reported in the browse log (attached).
Observed in both Sugar-Jhbuild and dextrose-2
