The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 2915
utf8 paswords required instead of unicode
Last modified: 2005-08-02 12:19:16 UTC
Strings used as passwords need to be converted to utf8 instead of the default
encoding of unicode if they contain non-ascii characters. This conversion
should be done inside the wrapper functions.
See the discussion at:
A proper fix for this is going to be a bit more complicated. All the strings
coming from wrapped functions need to be converted to unicode objects. They're
currently just returned as regular strings with utf8 encoding.
